Sapele, hand-dyed cotton canvas
This straight-backed chair is made of Sapele and a hand-dyed cotton canvas sling seat. It was a spontaneous design process that came together over the course of several weeks, bringing together hard, linear geometries with soft and organic textural moments. Larger expanses of wood in the back and legs highlight the natural grain of the Sapele, and a sewn grid on the sling seat reemphasizes the geometric construction of wooden frame.

As both an artist and designer, Breanne identifies strongly as a creative problem solver, and grapples with a diverse range of problems through a diverse range of media; she has been, and remains, a carpenter, a painter, a filmmaker, a performance artist, a host, a landscape artist, a space-maker, a clothing designer, a printmaker, a metalworker, a ceramicist, a sculptor, a writer, an archaeologist, a cook and a sandwich artist. She would like her various projects and investigations to grant her the freedom to play. She has exhibited work at Logan Center Exhibitions, Detroit Is The New Black, and in the 2021 Cranbrook Chair Show.
