Infrathin Collection: Tiger Eye, 2024

Price Upon Request

Using his signature silicone casting technique, Missel creates his Infrathin Collection of tables and benches. French-American painter Marcel Duchamp came up with the term Infrathin to refer to a rapidly fading trace or aura of something that was, similar to the “warmth of a seat that has just been vacated.” To create the works in this series, Missel uses compressed bales of discarded cardboard packaging and expertly casts and layers a skin of silicone around them. The small benches range from bright, candy-colored cubes to grayscale ""negatives"" that echo their original remnants, all while offering sculptural seating and surfaces to interior spaces. 
Say Missel, “The coalescence of our waste defines us and connects us across economic backgrounds. Boxes for diapers, avocados, appliances tell a story of our lives, our communities, our memories, our hopes.”
Materials: silicone, memory foam.
