NEW YORK CITY, BROOKLYN MUSEUM / Permanent Collection
The Cervo Chair by Antonio Pio Saracino has been acquired in the Permanent Collection of the Brooklyn Museum in the Decorative Arts Department.
The Cervo Chair is shaped from thin strips of bentwood, recalling the ribcage and antlers of a deer.
The chair is an exploration of the use of traditional plywood in a complex shape system. The complexity of the structure enhances the idea of a form that is inside-out, and as result it strengthens the seat itself.
Less material where the seat meets the back of the chair allows for more flexibility.
