Description

One aspect of artist Boris Bally’s remarkable studio practice includes the design and production of objects created from upcycled traffic signs. Street signs are transformed via cold connections into this remarkable and memorable chair.

Looks stellar indoors, but if you wish, this piece can be displayed outdoors year-round in all climates and temperatures. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. The artist recommends wiping it down occasionally with a metal protectant (e.g. Armor All).

NOTE: Although easy – the chair requires assembly; great instructions and tools included. Shipped flat. This piece will ship directly from the artist’s studio for a flat rate, no local pickup possible. (Local’s can however have it shipped to us and we will assemble for you!)

Artist Info

Boris Bally – Providence, RI

Boris Bally’s work is both witty and innovative, employing the use of jeweler’s skills on non-precious materials. His current body of work transforms recycled street signs, weapon parts, and a wide variety of found materials into objects for reflection. These pieces celebrate raw American street-aesthetic in the form of objects, often useful, for the home and the body. Boris is the recipient of the 2006 Individual Achievement Award for the Visual Arts, presented by the Arts & Business Council of Rhode Island. His work has received two Rhode Island Council on the Arts Fellowships in Design and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Fellowship in Craft, and is featured in numerous international exhibitions and publications. Public collections include London’s V&A Museum, Museum of Art & Design, Carnegie Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Renwick Gallery and Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.
