Following last month’s natural wood iteration, Tom Sachs has introduced his Shop Chair in grey. Though it sports a new paint job, the piece is otherwise identical to the past edition, down to each item’s hand-engraved, sequentially-numbered edition plate.
In line with Sachs’ industrial aesthetic, the wooden Shop Chair blends futuristic touches with a rugged, utilitarian motif. Each fully-assembled maple and pine plywood seat is finished with water-based lacquer to ensure a matte look, with a series of ever-expanding circles bored through each of the perpendicular legs. A single hole is located at the top slat.
Take a closer look the limited edition furniture on Tom Sachs’ web store, where the $2,500 USD chair has already sold out. It remains available, however, at Salon 94 during Frieze New York.
We recently went inside Sachs’ “Tea Ceremony” exhibition in Tokyo, after the artist showed off a wild pair of Nike Solarsoft sandals.
