Every month, Interview picks an artist- or designer-created object that straddles the line between aesthetics and function. Subdued tastes need not apply.
Following his blowout solo show-cum-birthday bash at The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, Rob Pruitt scaled it down this week, debuting a rather practical and managebly sized artwork in the form of a custom folding chair, titled “Graffiti Chair. “I love this classic model metal folding chair,” says Pruitt. “It’s so friendly and familiar. I use this very model in my studio. Wrapped with doodles from me and all my assistants, it feels like you’re right there.” The piece was commissioned by Bill Powers and Cynthia Rowley’s art object retailer Exhibition A, and the 100 editions are available exclusively through their website.
“GRAFFITI CHAIR” BY ROB PRUITT IS FOR SALE ONLINE THROUGH EXHIBITION A.
