Fracture by Itay Ohaly

Israeli designer Itay Ohaly has proposed a series of chairs called Fracture, made of benches of various materials which are torn or smashed into individual chairs.

Ohaly used acrylic, beech, plywood, concrete and cardboard to create the collection.

The project explored how the nature of each material affected the appearance of the fracture.

Here is some more information from Ohaly:

Fractures are a part of life and nature. Fractures have different forms that derive from the material structure and the type and strength
of energy that is activated upon it.

During the years, with the development of industrial processes, we “tamed” the material and took it away from its natural form. Our eyes are accustomed to see flattened, polished and bright materials, as well as our sense of touch that examines the feel and quality of the surface.

This project is an exploration of the material characteristics of the fracture. It presents the wild and unique aesthetics of each material and its interaction with intense energy.

The “full” object is the starting point of each creation while the fracture brings it to its final shape.
