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.

Modernica is a company founded on the principles and the passion of the vibrant North American Modernism movement. This era is often said to have originated in Los Angeles with the Case Study® Program in 1945. Modernica embraces this Modernist movement’s ethos. The ideals established in this period were the basis on which the quintessential California lifestyle was imagined and created. Simple design, high quality, high-functionality, and accessibility are the basic tenets, which drive our company. This clear vision and commitment has enabled Modernica to transform from our beginnings as a vintage store to our current position as a distinguished manufacturer and designer of Modern furniture and lighting. Modernica occupies a factory located in Los Angeles with over 100 employees who proudly handcraft each piece of furniture one-by-one. www.modernica.net
