Go ahead, sink your teeth into Wendell Castle Furniture. As his iconic molar chair suggests, good design needn’t be so refined all the time.
A background as a sculptor encouraged Wendell Castle to try his hand at furniture. Inspired by the one-of-a-kind furniture of designers like George Nakashima, but not purely allegiant to wood, he turned to cutting-edge materials like stack-lamination to realize his visions. Supremely flexible, lamination and plastic allowed Castle to create graceful, meandrous shapes that mimicked sculpture. Toy-like in presence, but undeniably astute, Wendell Castle pieces are leading examples of the studio craft movement—a most inspired choice for those who desire furniture that wears many hats.
