Furniture Sculpture Meets Seating. Sculpture Wins.

David Weeks may be best known for his spare, Calder-esque chandeliers and lamps, but he is also an accomplished furniture designer. That aspect of his work can be seen on April 3, when his first line of upholstered furniture is introduced at Ralph Pucci International in Manhattan. Sculpt, a collection inspired by the peaks and slopes of topographical maps and Barbara Hepworth's stone sculptures, includes an armchair ($6,720), a sectional (not priced), a 10-foot sofa ($15,000) and an 8-foot sofa, above ($12,300). Each piece has a stainless steel frame gently cradling an asymmetrical seat and scooped backrest, shapes that Mr. Weeks said he developed in prototype by hacking away at huge foam blocks without the aid of a ruler, trusting his eye to create visual balance.

Sculpt will be available, along with Sarus, Mr. Week's new line of lighting at Ralph Pucci International, 44 West 18th Street, (212) 633 - 0452. Julie Taraska
