Manufacturer's Product Description

Shown in reclaimed Coney Island boardwalk (ipe) with powdercoated steel base, 69 x 22 x 39.5H


DESCRIPTION


The Cyclone rollercoaster is one of Coney Island’s last remaining functional rides. It is resurrected here in the form of a lounge chair, with undulating dark and light Ipe and a crisp white laser-cut metal base. Uhuru plays off the organized chaos of the ride’s structure, flattened to one layer of metal, and with the sides connected sporadically to create a dynamic interchange of space and void on the base. The metal is finished with a low-VOC powder coat finish.


The Coney Island Line is crafted from reclaimed wood taken from the demolished iconic boardwalk. The Ipe wood, first installed on the boardwalk in the late 1940?s, has weathered in the sun, salt, and snow for 70 years. The design is inspired by the duality of Coney Island- its whimsical, colorful summers and melancholy winters. The pieces interpret the architecture of the desolate dreamscape: low-rise buildings patched with signs and seasonal layers of paint, beneath the towering old-fashioned rollercoaster.


The Cyclone Lounger was added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in the fall of 2012.


Available in custom sizes and finishes. Hand built to order, signed and numbered by the maker in Red Hook, Brooklyn and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
