Embellished Eames Shell Armchair
Posted on October 08 2019
I recently painted an iconic Eames Shell Armchair in collaboration with Herman Miller Philadelphia for their ANNUAL MODERN CLASSIC for Design Philadelphia at the Center for Architecture + Design. This chair will be auctioned off Thursday, 10.10.19 to raise money for Charter High School for Architecture + Design in Philadelphia.
"The Eames Shell Armchair sits on the throne of modern day design and fabrication. The addition of gold luster speaks to the great power and effect that seemingly simple forms and design can have on us, and the outsized influence they can have on art and design for decades.
Riding the line of fine art and design, symbols of life were applied freehand, allowing the curves of the chair and the flow of the paint to guide each stroke of the brush." - Sean Martorana
