Modernica

Modernica and Krink collaborate again offering a new take on the Case Study Furniture® Fiberglass Shell Chair. The Modernica x Krink Upholstered Fiberglass Shell Chair with Eiffel Base features designs based on original art by Craig Costello, founder and owner of Krink. Costello’s painting showcases an interest in the balance of controlled and uncontrolled features where cascading paint is dictated by the pressure he applies with his unique tools as well as gravity and chance. The stark contrast of black and white accentuates the form of his lines and shape of the chair. The chair consists of a Jet Black fiberglass shell, upholstered in custom printed black and white fabric, black edge trim, black wire Eiffel base, and a Krink logo plate. The limited edition of 100 chairs is available for purchase exclusively at modernica.net.

About Modernica
For over 25 years, Modernica has proudly built each piece of furniture, one-by-one, at its five-acre campus in Los Angeles, CA. It has been family owned and operated since it opened. Modernica is responsible for revitalizing the almost lost art of high-pressure fiberglass molding. The factory is home to the historic fiberglass presses and specialized machinery that has been used in the production of thousands of chairs for over three generations. The Fiberglass Shell Chairs were originally designed in 1948 as an entry in The Museum of Modern Art’s International Design Competition, and are easily one of the most important and recognizable designs of the twentieth century. For more information, visit modernica.net.

Beyond the Streets NYC

Craig Costello is pleased to participate in Beyond the Streets, a group exhibition in New York City, curated by Roger Gastman.  In this exhibition, Costello exhibits 2 paintings and 2 sculptures. The work spans over 10 years, the paintings from 2019 and the sculptures from an earlier series of works. The juxtaposition highlights a continued exploration of experimentation and invention in process. Costello develops his tools by re-purposing and modifying devices and objects not often associated with fine art. He is able to balance controlled and uncontrolled features where cascading paint is dictated by the pressure he applies to his tools as well as chance.

The works share an interest in minimal form and shape. They are simple and classic, but do not seek to be perfect. The sculptures are based on the mailboxes Costello used to paint on the street. With his handmade paint formula, he made gestural marks that created his signature drip. At the time, mailboxes were a favorite surface because they were objects he then transformed into sculptures.
