Ottoman / footstool executed in 1/2" copper tubing with upholstered seat, inspired by the iconic arc of a camera aperture. The solid squares of the base and cushion are connected by 12 angled supports that gracefully connect the two pieces creating an optical illusion that the piece is floating lightly off of the floor. Cushion is made of high-grade foam mounted on a piece of 1/2" solid wood (not particle board).


*Several finishes available, please inquire.*



A self-taught artist, TJ Volonis’ creative work incorporates a wide variety of themes: human biological processes, the natural world and man's relationship to it, hidden systems, technology and contemporary culture, and the implicit balance between order and chaos, among others. He views his work as a collaboration between the material with its limitations and his own intentions and designs.

TJ received a BA in Japanese Studies from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. After graduating, he moved to Brooklyn and has been a resident of the borough for the last 15 years, designing furniture and creating art for the last 11 of those years. He lives in Park Slope and works out of a metalworks studio in Gowanus.

His work has appeared in: Architectural Digest, LUXE, The New York Observer, Wallpaper* Magazine, Elle Decor, Lonny Magazine, Freshome, Design Milk, Core 77, Artsicle, Gotham Gazette, and Examiner. He was also selected as one of NYC's top emerging artists in December of 2011 and 2013 and was the 2005 Best Emerging Artist in Mixed Media at the GLAAD OUTAuction.
