United Arab Emirates, 2016

KALOA 01

Description

Medium: Baltic birch plywood, untreated camel leather

Dimensions: 35.5 in high x 27.5 in wide x 31.5 in deep

Ammar Kalo's Stratus possesses a set of flexed arms, cushions upholstered in camel leather, and a frame in a extraordinarily textured birch. But it is more than the sum of its extraordinary parts--it is, rather, a symphony of complementary eccentricities, an object of great, delicate beauty. The stool from this series is held in the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York.
