This is an elegant seating Sculpture design called as Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness. This new seating is designed by Ian McChesney by allowing treacle to fall from a spoon and then the result is inverted. Colored in black this sculpture chair is designed for the Angel Building in London. The seating has oval shape which extends a narrow twenty two metre high spar. It made of strong and very light carbon fibre, enabling it to be incredibly slender. The dimension of this chair sculpture is 22 metres high and narrows to 100mm diameter at the midpoint, and 25mm at the tip.
“We wanted the piece to be fluid in form, in contrast with the very rational nature of the surrounding building. It was important that the shape was generated through a real process rather than mere invention. Remembering how treacle glides off a teaspoon we set about experimenting. What was elegant about the treacle was that as it fell from the spoon a sinuous tapering curve form was generated. So in an instant the shape of the piece was born, the elliptical spoon shape would provide the seat and base, the long strand the spar rising up the atrium. The title of the piece ‘Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness’ appears as a motto on the Lyles treacle tin and is in turn a biblical reference from chapter 14 of the Book of Judges. While this provided a direct link to the piece, the phrase had a resonance with the form.”
