Subtext

Sub-text is a sweet corner chair for quiet moments.

Constructed from Readers Digest books, both the 'condensed' and the 'select edition' versions from 1971-1991, Sub-text gives a kinder existence and afterlife to these otherwise forgotten books.

The chair is made from 56 books and approx 232 stories, supported and constructed with threaded steel rods, and ply to add strength to the seat.

Creative play with carving and manipulating/ folding/warping the pages has added some much needed embellishment to these formerly bland hardbacks.

Materials: Books, threaded rod, bolts, pine plywood
