Prickly Pear Cactus Lounge Chair
Though the prickly pear cactus is the most common member of the Cacti family, it does not make it short of surprises. That is why Naihan Li chose them as the inspiration for this collection of organic form sitting objects. The fruit and flower of the cactus adds an extra element of playfulness to the comical cast. The “prickles” are made with the unique Chinese lacquer-making method known as the “rhino skin technique”. The body is digitally modeled, carved into shape by robotic arms, and reinforced by carbon fiber. In this “100% All-Natural” series of new works, Naihan brings the traditional Chinese motive of turning organic forms into household objects, in a contemporary setting.
Materials: Carbon Fiber, Chinese Lacquer.
