Design Miami/ 2012 - a preview Gallery VIVID will be presenting the Recession Chair Bronze by Frank Tjepkema at the seminal art and design exhibition Design Miami/ 2012, from December 4-9. The piece will be displayed alongside several iconic pieces by Gerrit Rietveld, the great Dutch furniture designer and architect. 
"Receding is the act of withdrawing and diminishing. We were interested in exploring the visual impact of receding in relation to a design object. We took a popular mass produced chair and started sanding it to the finest possible version. The result is a process where the chair goes from normal, to diminished, to skeleton like. The resulting object looks as if it won’t withstand the weight of the person it's supporting, yet the bronze casting provides the necessary strength for it to serve as a functional object." -  explains Frank Tjepkema
