Sohrab II - Chair

  • Type : Chair
  • Material : Wood, Steel
  • Year : 2019

Sohrab is HAMOUN’s next effort in coming up with “new distinct ways to sitting”. It is named after Sohrab; son of Rostam, the mythical hero in Shahnameh. Sohrab led the Touranian host against Iran and was defeated and killed by his father, Rostam, in a duel, when neither one knew whom they were fighting against. “The tragedy of Rostam and Sohrab, is the tragedy of ignorance”.  Sohrab’s fall symbolizes the decapitation of a new generation and their fresh beliefs by their predecessors. A phenomenan not so unknown to today’s cultural sphere.
