Jim Rose Steel Furniture - Four Drawer Gee's Bend Blue Strip Quilt Cupboard

$4,650

About

This totally functional modern industrial cabinet is created from hot-rolled steel and found painted panels. The panels on the drawer fronts and sides are created from strips of blue painted salvaged and recycled steel. This unique custom piece is a model of sustainable design. The pattern is inspired by the Quilts of Gee's Bend Alabama. [This piece is available as pictured. The artist is also available for commission requests through the gallery.] Jim Rose Four drawer strip quilt counter hot roll and found painted steel Measures: 35.50 H x 51 W x 16 D in 90.17 H x 129.54 W x 40.64 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.
