About: Wendell Castle’s whimsical creations have long challenged traditional expectations in furniture design. He has stated that he has “no interest in form following function” and is instead focused on referencing shapes derived from the natural world. True Dreams alludes to the history of chair design while incorporating an outline of the tail fin of a fish.
