Elevation and section
Ghost takes as its starting point the traditional New England porch swing, an instantly recognizable icon of vernacular design, known as much for its comfort as for its old-time detailing, of which there seem to be an infinite number of permutations. Ghost appropriates the proportions, angles, and dimensions of the swing’s seat surface while cleansing it of its hyper-articulation and leaving in its place a void – a pure structure absent of reference or of rhetoric. Ghost is a place to sit; it is also a simple beam, suspended between two points, oscillating endlessly in the normal plane.
