Jim Rose Half Housetop Gee's Inspired Quilt Cupboard, Steel Art Furniture



This totally functional modern industrial cabinet is created from recycled hot-rolled steel. The monochromatic quilt pattern in the doors and on the sides of the piece are inspired by quilt patterns. The interior of this cabinet contains two fixed shelves. This custom created cabinet is a model of sustainable design. The arrangement of steel panels on the door is inspired by the quilts of Gee's Bend Alabama. [This artist is also available for commission requests through the gallery.] Jim Rose Half Housetop Quilt cupboard, 2017 Hot roll and found painted steel Measures: 48 H x 35 W x 17.50 D in 121.92 H x 88.90 W x 44.45 D cm Jim Rose b. 1966 Bio Born in Indiana, Jim Rose lived in Europe until he returned to the United States to attend college. After one year at Bard College, Jim transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (SAIC) where he graduated in 1988 with a BFA. His skillful interpretation of the Shaker design is a result of intense research and field study of Shaker furniture, architecture, culture and history. After over two decades of dedicated work, he has mastered the minimalism of the Shaker technique and created his own unique visual vernacular. The quilts of Gee's Bend have become a monumental influence taking this artist's work to new levels of unique interpretation and artistry. His selection of aged steel results in a patina directly related to that of aged wood while his colored strips beautifully mimic worn cloth. Each piece of furniture is masterfully made and intended for daily use. Jim Rose’s steel furniture is featured every year at SOFA Chicago for the past 25 years.
