Artwork Tags:

Tree Chair 2 is a sculpted plywood chair. It’s visual language references natural forms – skeletons and bones, dinosaur anatomy, and dead branches, smooth and free of bark; all while itself being made of the material of a tree: Plywood– a material that has been drastically altered from its original form yet one that retains its structural and sculptural qualities; the layers of plies even resembling grain patterns when carved. Tree Chair 2 must be crated before shipping which is an extra charge. Email for more information.

Nicholas Tilma is a designer and artist based in Detroit, Michigan. Through experimental and traditional fabrication techniques and by mixing material languages he creates otherworldly furniture, lighting, and objects that combine references to artificial nature and science fiction to address the following questions: How will humans of the future memorialize the natural world when our references are themselves the fake versions of the real thing? How can we acknowledge our collective fear of a dystopian future, while romanticizing its aesthetic?
