In Urano Palma’s designs it is often hard to separate sculpture from furniture. The artistic avant-garde movements have evidently left a mark on the Italian designer’s present high-back chair. The present work, while looking like a chair, falls in the sculpture category.

This hand finished, raw wood sculpture is the definition of eye-catching, but not in the flashy, kitschy way. The message that Palma intends to portray is that of a poetic world, lending an innovative and sensitive contribution to the cultural image of the habitat as “Art of Living”.‎ The hand carved wood throughout the work has an amazing texture, which is very apparent on the high back. The pattern is completely unique, and does not confine itself to strict symmetry.

This sculpture communicates with art, by means of visions and emotions: a quality that justifies its meaningful presence in any space. With its slender presence it enters dwellings not merely to be looked at, but also to interact in the life and with the needs of people; not only to decorate but also to animate. Urano Palma was a peculiar figure in the history of Italian design from the sixties.‎ As exemplified by this creation, he strived to renew the art of living with a modern feeling for the old.‎
