The Eames DCW chair, with its molded plywood seat and gentle curves, is an icon of mid-century design.
It also runs $629 for a new one from Herman Miller, and originals are well over a $1,000! However, this wonderful, handpulled Linocut print by artist Eric Rewitzer of 3 Fish Studios is a mere $25, and although you can’t sit in it, it has equally lovely lines.
I love artists who work on a small, sustainable scale, and handpulled prints are a great example of that. No mass produced posters, or over priced lithographs of cheesy cottages. This is art by someone who loves working with their hands and having a connection with their craft.
There are ten different icons of modernistic seating in Eric Rewitzer’s series, all equally stylish. Each print is signed and numbered as part of a limited edition of 100 prints. You can purchase them individually at $25 each, or purchase the entire set for $200. What an amazing gift for an interior design student when they graduate.
Hmmm… well, I was thinking of going back for a masters….
