Jim Drain Unique Prototype Contemporary Bench, Stainless Steel, Aluminium, 2000s

$7,900

About

A unique prototype bench by contemporary artist Jim Drain. Made from bathroom handrails / grab bars and milled steel. Later examples were powder-coated in different bright colors, reminiscent of works by Franz West and the Memphis group. The work fully functions as a bench but should also be considered a work of fine art / sculpture. The sculpture bench has authenticated by the artist. Drain was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design and a member of the group, force field, a noise-band and art collective that was included in the 2002 Whitney Biennial. His work is in the collections of Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo, Norway; Miami Art Museum, Miami, Florida; Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art, Providence, Rhode Island; and Museum of Modern Art, New York. Follows a linage of important designers working in metal. These include Diego Giacometti, François-Xavier & Claude Lalanne, Poul Kjaerholm and Marc Newson.
