Rolling Throne

Jadot describes his magnificent assemblage chair, embellished with 24ct gold and hardware elements, as “an enlightened assembly made with disparate elements, a game of collisions.” The pieces of raw wood are taken from a redwood root seat, recovered in a Belgian forest, while the cushions are fashioned from vintage textiles from mountain villages in Turkey, feathers, and industrial tarpaulin.  An Olivetti reading lamp from 1970s is fastened to the back of the chair, operated by a switch positioned on the right arm. Resting on heavy duty industrial casters, every angle the chair has been thoughtfully considered to spark surprise.
