Our Chair for the Pink Jalk Project
04 OCT 2012 – We are honored to participate in SUITE New York’s third annual Pink Project to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Our design is rooted in the expressive form and prominent grain of Greta Jalk’s original chair. We hand-painted the names of 49 design pioneers on the chair’s seat and back and stained its underside in BCRF’s signature pink. The chair serves as both a backdrop, as if it were a piece of lined paper, and a sculpted form to which our text conforms.
SUITE New York will auction twenty customized Jalk chairs to benefit the BCRF throughout October, International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our reimagined Jalk chair and the chairs of the other participating designers honor the women whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.
