At this years London Design Festival 2012, Designersblock are pleased to introduce designer Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers, who will be featuring her unique ‘Ghost of a chair’ and ‘Wild Botched chair’ creations.
Valentinaʼs design fuses conceptual thinking, artistic approach and usability. What is unique about her work, is its originality, boldness, narrative and outstanding quality.Valentina offers furniture and accessories created in the line of emotional design: pieces made to last, to grow older with their owners, becoming into much more than just a material possession to them. The designs are not based in disposable transit trends. This particular take in furniture and accessories invites the user to interact with it, to play, to question, to surprise, to enjoy.
The Wild Botched Chair is an intriguing, one of a kind handcrafted piece of art, created in collaboration between Val and Oaxacan artisan Gabriel López. The Wild Botched Chair re-stages something forgotten, overlooked dead wood, yet not dead at all from nature back to nature.
The Ghost of a Chair is a sculptural free-form furniture piece, handmade out of a single 4mm transparent polyester sheet. Each chair is unique due to its unconventional manufacturing process, using a combination of high-end technology and craft, in a labour of love. Volatile and unpredictable, each Ghost chair is a One-off.
During the Designersblock show, the special edition black ‘Ghost of a chair’ will be available for sale within the Royal Festival Hall shop.
