SALMACIS – Androgynous throne, a plea for femininity
With Salmacis we are excited to showcase for the first time, an ORGANIC STEEL™ realisation. A she throne, to inspire anyone who takes a seat in it just like Salmacis fountain.
Salmacis, a mythological figure, a nymph from Phrygia is described in Book IV of Ovid’s Metamorphosis. It tells a tale of unanswered desire for Hermaphroditus, the son of Hermes & Aphrodite. Eventually they merge ‘Both bodies in a single body mix, a single body with a double sex’.
The form obtained its shape through focusing on the desired effect experienced by those who dare take a seat. Wide enough to house lovers willing to merge, as well as for those taking a lotus pose to fuse on a celestial level.
Intricately decorative perforated peacock patterns result in a protective force field, allowing for seclusion whilst bathing in the playful shadows, casted from outside light. A throne high as a lookout post with storage compartments and extra-large arm rests to guard the things needed for rituals enabling the connection with our androgynous core.
A beautiful, safe place for contemplation, fusion, fertility and prosperity.
