Goatskin Vellum Bench

The Goatskin Vellum Bench was inspired by Tadao Ando’s “Gate of Creation” at the Roberto Garza Sada Center of Art, Architecture and Design in Monterrey, Mexico. The form of the Bench influenced the geometric pattern, which I created with pieces of English goatskin vellum, a luminous, translucent animal skin material. Each piece was selected for color, tone and grain pattern. I then back beveled the edges and individually applied them so they slightly overlap one another. The feet are custom patinated brass subtly set back and angled to reiterate lines in the case form.
