The original ‘Man Chair ‘ was first sculpted by Ruth Francken in 1971 executed from a plaster casted alive model.
Ruth Francken was a sculptor, painter, and furniture designer. Her life and career spanned over six decades, two continents, and more than half a dozen countries. She was considered an abstract expressionist early on, working with objects, sculptures, collages, and different textiles and techniques. Her art took on a more surrealist and pop-art aesthetic that focused heavily on problems and disconnects in communication.
