Christina Grajales Gallery (New York) showed these pieces by Mike and Doug Starn at Design Miami. The pieces are bamboo with rock climbing cord.
One question people ask about fascinating designs like this is practical; can you SIT on the. In this case it took half an hour to get photos because people at the fair kept doing exactly that. In one case it seemed the person was about to pull out a book and have a glass of wine they sat there so long.
At a guess? They are comfortable and functional!
