Swedish Artist Pontus Willfors is based in California and had an exhibition at Edward Cella Art & Architecture Gallery in Culver City “Homeland” in June 2015. There he showed inter alia his “Chairs” that he gave branches and roots.
Pontus Willfors challenges the way the viewer perceives everyday objects. He examines aspects of nature that are viewed by our society as product, nuisance or waste. Through mostly sculptural exercises he addresses the power of our culture and its ability to manipulate nature and shape its surroundings.
He has shown his work throughout the continental U.S. including Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis in Los Angeles, Irvine Fine Arts Center, Read Contemporary in Dallas and was part of the curatorial show at Art Miami in 2012.
Pontus Willfors graduated from CalArts (Valencia, CA) in 2009 and has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2005.

About Aura Living
CV Aura Living is an Indonesian company and it seems its website is out of order, but from the new and excellent M&O platform MOM (Mason et Object and More) you can get some background info on the company.
The Boogaloo Lazy Chair is handmade and the blocked cover consists of patched lighter and darker leather blocks.
2seat is a chair with two faces that invites you to interact in a new manner with the most often used object, the chair. It is an interactive design due to the fact that by simply turning the chair over, you transform it into a low chair, and the process can be reversed. Both sides are carefully designed, in relation one to each other, in order to control the final volume but without compromising the ergonomy of either one.
Material: birch plywood with natural finish lacquer.
Sizes: L 810 mm x l 400 mm x h 790 mm
