My Beautiful Backside is a collection of seats whose backrests are a composition of highly coloured, floating cushions in various shapes. The wider your seat, the more cushions you can have. Our use of oversize symbols, such as the buttons on cushion backs, is a way of conveying a variety of messages. These symbols also provide a means of customising each chair, making it unique, just as you would add little distinguishing touches to an article of clothing. The top mattress is covered with a composition of different objects and since they draw inspiration from a modern princess they’re embroidered in gold and silver.
Seats in stress-resistant polyurethane foam in varied densities and polyester fiberfill on wood frame. Backs in injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame. Feet are walnut with natural finish; glides in brass-coated metal. My Beautiful Backside collection covers are not removable.
