Solid Teakwood Viking Throne by John Brevard

US$16,999per item

About

A keen proponent of sustainability, John Brevard’s handcrafted sculptural furniture aims to celebrate materials natural to our earth. Made from sustainably harvested teak wood from the PT Perhutani forestry reserve in Indonesia, each wooden slab is hand carved by skilled artisans and joined together to form Brevard’s signature parametric design. Reflecting Brevard’s belief that our world is made of fractal geometries, this armchair features repeating hexagonal and triangular patterns in both large and small scales. Equilateral triangles represent strength, with the upward pointing triangle symbolizing the masculine and the inverted triangle symbolizing the feminine. When triangles are conjoined into a hexagon, it is a symbol of harmony and balance. The strongest shape found in nature, hexagons signify the omnipresence of consciousness and significance distributed throughout the universe, to be posited by rational, logical, natural, technological explanations. This throne embodies that idea and will be the centerpiece of any room. This piece is currently available in either a versatile dark brown or clean, airy white-wash stain. Custom finishes are available for custom orders. About the materials: teak wood has long been prized for its durability and versatility. Long used for furniture and decoration by elites in its native Southeast Asia, teak wood then made its way to Europe by way of Dutch merchants. In the west, it’s often used for shipbuilding, due to its hardness and ability to withstand humidity and ward off dry rot. Unlike more common woods such as pine and oak, teak retains its natural oils and rubber even after being felled and processed. Because of this, teak has greater naturally weather-resistant properties than almost all other wood. The oils and rubber effectively weatherproof the wood, making teak an ideal choice for outdoor furniture. The wood is also naturally protected from dry rot and from fungi and parasites that can destroy other woods. Given the long growth period of teak (typically 80 years until maturation), Brevard uses sustainably cultivated teak without irrigation or fertilizers for this collection in order to protect earth’s natural Habitat. All pieces are made with the highest quality (Grade A) teak from the heart of the tree to ensure maximum durability and versatility. About John Brevard: John Brevard is a luxury lifestyle brand founded by American architect and designer John Brevard in 2007. The design ethos of John Brevard is the merging of past, present, and future in an ethereal way, through materials, textures, and fractal patterns that exist at all scales in the universe. Inspired by the principles of natural order, each creation is symbolic of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. The brand currently features fine jewelry, furniture, sculpture, and art. Creative Director Brevard is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). In addition, Brevard is currently the architect, Creative Director, and co-developer for Six Senses Ossura Valley, a sustainable resort slated to open in Iceland in 2022. Please note that the chair does not include the leather cushions but does come fully assembled. Please note that custom orders are non-refundable.
