“Left-handed Rietveld Chair” by artist Julien Berthier

Left-handed Rietveld Chair by artist Julien Berthier

I often check Julien Berthier’s website hoping to find new work. I didn’t find any today, so I’m posting more of his old work. This piece is the result of Berthier drawing Gerrit Rietveld’s famous “Red and Blue Chair”, using his left hand. A carpenter was given the drawing and instructed to produce five identical chairs.

See more images of the chair below, or check out previous posts of his work: hereherehereherehere, and here.

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International. See more images below.
