Starfish Chair by Alan Siegel
A unique and whimsical chair designed by artist Alan Siegel. This fascinating piece heavily borrows its forms, colors, and textures from ocean imagery, from a seat, armrest, and backrest that looks like a starfish to a red and white base modeled after coral. Colorful divots and dowels speckle the entire chair. A wondrous piece of furniture that can add a lot of pizzazz to any space.

Designer
Alan Siegel was born in New York in 1938. He received his B.A. from Brandeis University and did graduate work at Stanford and Columbia Universities before becoming a Fulbright Scholar in Paris. Siegel resides in New York. Since the 1960s, Siegel has worked in sculpture in the form of chairs in wood, aluminum, bronze and steel. After many years of creating chairs in wood with paint, the artist began to make chairs in weather-sustaining metal: bronze, aluminum, steel. These chairs took him outside his Woodstock home into the environment he loves, on which he works with devotion and zeal as the seasons require, building rock walls in summer, clearing leaves in the fall and celebrating bare skeleton trees in winter. It is these activities of nature from the land surrounding the artist’s home that propelled the artist into his newest chairs created from trees, allowing the glory of the tree itself to shine forth. The artist hollows and finishes a space for “sitting,” while selecting trunks with grace, beauty and the power of the forest floor.
