Oh, Johnny Swing, the things you do with chairs! Swing’s line of Obsessive Furniture includes the contoured Nickel Couch that is made with over 6400 welded nickels. And if nickels don’t add up quickly enough, there is always the Quarter Chair. But Swing is not just about nickel and diming it. His Jar Chair and Jardelier (chandelier made of glass jars) attest to a wider use of materials. Sculpture or furniture? Both.
