Need some good luck? You’re sitting on it!
Pop Art marries Magic Charm
Sometimes we just need a little bit of luck. Most of us have something we say or do to try and sway the odds towards us. My research tells me that the word ‘luck’ has a Middle Dutch root. Apparently, the word was then borrowed by the English in the 1800’s and used possibly as a gambling term. Maybe there was a famous gambler called Albert Luck that started this trend by frequently winning on the roulette tables. Thereby it became known that if you wanted a big win, you needed some ‘Luck’! Don’t ask Siri that, my imagination just ran away with me for a moment. There is no evidence to suggest there was an Arnold Luck responsible for the phenomenon of the word Luck!

Here, we are delivered an infinite lucky charm by Arad’s use in the radical re-conception of form. Organic and unexpected, using smooth lines and nuances he blends together the distinctive silhouette of a four leaf clover. Arad, a poet of shapes and master of experimentation, cleverly displays a symbol of hope, desire, and reassurance in this contemporary masterpiece. Abstract in appearance but alluring in concept, Arad has transformed the unexpected into the expected by the means of absorbing good luck into every inch of this elegant chair.
