Chairs by Maarten Baas seen at Gramercy Park Hotel, New York - Smoke Wing Chair and Ottoman

Smoke Wing Chair and Ottoman

The overstuffed lounge chair in each guest room looks as if its black-charred wood frame (preserved with clear epoxy) only barely made it out of a four-alarm fire. This chair, specially designed by Dutch artist and product designer Maarten Baas, is akin to many of the pieces in Baas's popular "Smoke" collection.
