Since the early 70s and throughout his career until he died in 1994, Minimalist artist Donald Judd was occupied with creating furniture, an extension of his art. Like his sculptures, the furniture has been characterized by superb proportions, reduction to pure, precise, geometric, hard-edged forms of rigid planes, made in industrial materials. When you visit his Soho home on 101 Spring Street or his various buildings in Marfa Texas, all operated by the Judd Foundation, you immediately come to recognize his signature abstract forms and materials, raw plywood, simple pine, aluminum, and other metal sheets, with which he created his chairs, tables, bookcases, and beds. From now on, Judd's iconic furniture will be sold directly by the Judd Foundation, which produces the pieces in a foundry in Switzerland (the metal pieces) and made by California craftsman Jeff Jamieson (the wood pieces). To celebrate the event, an exhibition ‘pre-‘94’ will open at the 101 Spring Street next month. Below, my visit to Marfa.
