used sandpaper, MDF

This chair is simultaneously a constructivist sculpture and a bookshelf. It is covered with a veneer of used industrial sandpaper, which gives the whole thing a pink-red colour. Veneering is a technique that involves mounting thin layers of rare or expensive wood types on a substrate of less expensive wood. In this case, however, Jadot has applied them to a material that is meant to be thrown away. Due to its intensive use, the sandpaper is full of stripes and scratches, creating a graphic effect. The chair is finished with a layer of varnish.
