about this piece
A tiny little book measuring only 1/8th of a standard US letter sheet of paper. A selection of 32 chair constellations from my sketchbook iterations of the iconic Eames Wire Eiffel Chairs (DKR.O 1951). The images are printed in 2 colors on vintage 1940s onion skin typewriter paper. It is bound with handmade marble paper from Florence and hand sewn with red silk thread.
