Artist Craig Costello worked with photographer Alessandro Simonetti to create this 36-page catalog documenting the creation of two large, commissioned works. The result is an intimate view of Costello’s methods, a significant part of which lies in the creation of the tools he uses to paint, as well as striking vignettes of the final works. Included is an essay by Carlo McCormick about the evolution in Costello’s work from the graffiti writing street culture to abstract painting.
36 pages with cover, black and white on uncoated stock. 7.5 x 10”, 19 x 25.5 cm.

Modernica and Krink team up to bring a new color with a unique shimmer to a California design icon. Understated and neutral at first-glance, a closer look reveals the Krink Fiberglass Side-Shell shines in classic Krink silver. The individual strands of fiberglass catch and hold the silver-pigments producing a soft luster with changing light and perspective. As two companies who produce handmade goods in the USA, we are extremely pleased with this collaborative work that sees New York City and Los Angeles sensibilities perfectly combined. The Krink Fiberglass Side-Shell chair is made using the original mold and production techniques specifically designed by pioneers in mid-century American design.
The Krink Fiberglass Side-Shell chair comes in Krink silver with solid walnut dowels, black wire, and embossed plate on bottom with Krink logo. Open edition. Handmade in the USA.
