‘Invisible Green’ Painted Pembroke Chair
The Pembroke Chair designed by Sarah Kay, & hand-painted by historic paint & lacquer specialist Pedro da Costa Felgueiras in â€˜Invisible Greenâ€™ â€“ a colour commonly used on exterior railings during Georgian times in an attempt to blend them with their surrounds.
The underside of the chair reveals Pedroâ€™s signature stamp, as well as the ingredients used to create the colour, which is a combination of Oxford Yellow, mined from the ground, & Lamp Black, sourced through holding a glass above a burning lamp and collecting the resulting soot.
The Pembroke chair itself was originally designed by Sarah Kay as part of Chris Eckersleyâ€™s second bodging project in 2012. The shape of the chair is inspired by the Welsh tradition of â€˜stickâ€™ chairs, sometimes also called Welsh Windsor chairs because the legs, back and arm supports are socketed into a solid seat.â€
