The chair was inspired by a murderer, Albert Fish, who was referred to as the werewolf, who was executed in 1936. The idea was to create a violent chair that communicates the chaos and the catastrophe that occurs when one gives in to desire, commits sins and reaches a state of ecstasy. The intention with the chair is that it represents the exact moment of transformation where a human losses all control, give in, and becomes a beast. The chair was created with woven rope, metal wire and layered finer class to add strength and as finish. This chair would have been, the most appropriate, last chair for Albert Fish.
