A wobbly sketch is transformed into an actual piece of furniture.

Parisian artist Julien Berthier is known for his left field approach to art, including his most famous piece from 2007, the ‘Love Love yacht’ which saw a sailing yacht designed to appear as though its sinking bow first representing ‘lost hope and death.’ His most recent work is a perfect embodiment of this; it’s a result of a sketch Berthier did of designer Gerrit Rietveld’s famed ‘Red And Blue Chair’ using his left hand. He sent the drawings to a carpenter who brought the drawing to life in an actual replica.
