Brooksbank & Collins’ Triton chair is named in honor of the planet Neptune’s Moon, Triton. Inspired by the dramatic view of the crescents of Neptune and Triton, acquired by NASA’s Voyager 2 in 1989, the chair’s geometry reflects the relationship of the two stellar bodies.
“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us — there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”
Carl Edward Sagan, American astronomer, 1934 – 1996
The Triton Chair is composed of 3 panels of naturally fallen book matched English burr Oak; Latin name Quercus macrocarpa is a large deciduous tree and one of the slowest-growing oaks; the tree is a microcosm of the life of the universe.
