Made from 10,000 drinking straws, the Clutch Chair, by Scott Jarvie, is an exploratory research piece that passes comment on our disposable culture.
This piece was selected by Zaha Hadid as her Curators Choice at Noise Festival 2008 .
The Clutch Project began as a microscopic observation of the structural composition of trees and the directional properties of Capillary tubes (xylem)
Detail of the seating surface of the Clutch Chair
Ubiquitous drinking straws are grouped and transformed into a primitive spot light. The reflective inner surface of the straw transmits the light in a directional manner creating a jewelesque effect.
