Isadora Chair by Agrippa
In the early twentieth century, artists tried to capture the movement of “Futurism” in their paintings and sculptures, replacing old forms to celebrate the emerging modern life. At the time, Isadora Duncan embraced these concepts with her personal style of dance, revitalizing her own art through the free flowing and natural movements of the body. The ideas of futurism re-surged in the 80’s with the Italian Bolidism group, but this particular expression was focused particularly on design.
The Isadora is a wingback chair that explores types of Nordic design of the 50’s while being a full expression of both the futurism and bolidismo movements. Its profile can remind us of many things; the bow of a ship, the legs of an insect, or the limbs of a predator preparing to pounce. The movement, lightness, and multiplicity of the piece is an embodiment and expression of dance as inspired by Isadora Duncan.
