About the work

The Rising Chair emphasize the natural shape an object can made by transforming itself. The rhythm of the wooden beams gives the chair an organic shape.

Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs’ furniture gives poetic form to function. Finding inspiration for his designs in bone structure, plant life and movement, Robert creates pieces whose design is both dictated and guided by their source materials.

Robert starts out by making small incisions in a flat surface, then sits back to watch and study the otherwise rigid wood’s reaction to the new shape it is able to assume. An important aspect of Robert’s design process is his conscious focus on marrying functionality with an aesthetically pleasing look.
