OUGD602 — Krink // Modernica Collaboration Chair

As my life focus revolves around graphic design, I will often admire the products of other disciplines.

I came across this beautiful fiberglass, maple & walnut chair which was designed between Krink and Modernica which retails at $395 / £257.

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 comes in Krink silver with solid walnut dowels, black wire and embossed plate on bottom with Krink logo. Open edition. Handmade in the USA.

I have always had an admiration for hand-made products and consumables with a lot of thought involved. The chair from afar appears very ordinary however on closer inspection, the strong details and craftsmanship are brought to light. This reminds me that everything that works well or looks good has had a lot of thought gone into it, everything is designed and it creates a human link to every product, it is when that is obvious, that I tend to admire it as more than just what it has been made for.
