Carlos about Louis IX:
“Hoop chair has an obvious point of reference in the classical Louis XVI chairs or Gustavian chairs with their back and seat with oval shapes. This oval shaped scheme has been a recurring subject during the twentieth century, many authors have recreated this archetype with diverse materials and proportions. What makes the difference between my project and its’ ancestors is the incorporation of a second layer or level of significance added as a membrane form that visually unifies and includes the two oval shapes. This layer recalls a period during the fourties and fifties of the twentieth century.” – Carlos Tiscar
