Re-upholstered antique armchair 93 h x 66 d x 68cm w
In these works the designer-maker Sam Edkins makes reference to Memento Mori, a theme often depicted in art and classical antiquity.
Sam uses imagery sourced from old medical journals which he tailors to suit each antique chair before digitally printing his design on to brushed velvet. As a process this allows Sam to embroider a new history into them and makes each one slightly different. The shape of the chair allows the print to flow into the chair structure, giving a figurative character and seeming to personify the piece.
Each chair is fully reconditioned and upholstered by Sam with his design.
