Description Todd Merrill Studio presents its work with OLEK, an artist renowned worldwide for her monumental, colorful hand-crocheted installations. This is one of four unique Swivel Thrones, a Todd Merrill Custom Originals design created specifically as a “canvas” upon which OLEK has intricately crocheted by hand; a warm, rich color palette inspired from her recent travels to India is beautifully woven with gold and silver threads and appliqués throughout.

The Thrones come with direct museum provenance; they were exhibited as part of OLEK’s installation at the Brooklyn Museum, featured alongside her two 40 foot-long crocheted tables at the Brooklyn Artists Ball honoring Jean Michel Basquiat, Takahashi Murakami, and Kiki Smith.

Oversized proportions and curvaceous, kingly forms render the thrones extremely comfortable, while a swivel mechanism allows for the intricate crochet artwork to be experienced from 360 degrees with ease.
