Art and creativity inspired by Anatomy and Science

Sam Edkin

These anatomically upholstered chairs are the creation of artist Sam Edkin and are sold through Cavaliero Finn at £595 each. Called “The Anatomically Correct Chair”; These pieces make reference to Memento Mori, a theme often depicted in art and Classical antiquity. They are luxuriously over stuffed offering a Bourgeois comfort, borrowing from the look of Victorian parlor furniture. They convey an air of humour and of the bizarre.
