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. Edition of 100.
Krink Studio: creative direction, product design, project management
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.
