Like a bed of nails, Alexander Lervik's Spike Chair has a seat and back fashioned from a number of wood rods.

Spike came to Lervik on a trip to the Philippines, says he "One day it poured with rain. Raining stair rods, as they say, and that's exactly how it was. The shafts of rain resembled slanted lines and in that rain I suddenly saw the outlines of Spike in front of me".


"There is a sense of freedom in being inspired by the rain, seeing a shape and working from that. Otherwise I have to take into account stackability, weight and other practical elements that are essential in a mass-produced product."


"I wanted to create a sculptural chair with a strong graphic identity. It was a challenge to make Spike comfortable despite its distinctive appearance". Collectively 60 rods of varying length mimic the curve of a body, with 30 different sizes in total. Spike is to be sold in a limited edition of ten via Gallerie Pascale.
