Hi there, I'm Chairity Auction Item

This is my story.

Da Capo al Coda

Maker: Pair, LLC.

Hello. Meet Da Capo al Coda. This light, composed from the action of a piano, celebrates the intricate pieces typically hidden from sight. A piano’s action is comprised of metal, wood, and felt in various forms constructed together as simple machines. After deconstructing the action, we divided the pieces amongst our team members. I found myself intrigued and inspired by the various forms and repeating patterns. I decided to distill the pieces down, stripping them of springs, felt pads, and metal tabs, to celebrate their purest state. I then applied a unifying wash of white paint with subtle notes of variation to all the pieces. The construction of the light, with a radial design and layering of materials, gives a nod to the harmonies once played by the pianist when striking the keys.

I was born at Pair, LLC, and listed for auction at Chairity, the annual event where creative volunteers auction off their designs in order to raise money for our community Chairity 2021 is being held November 4 at the San Francisco Design Center. Learn more at: www.givetwochairity.com
