I love chairs. And typography, So both Tim Fishlock’s and Blue Ant Studio’s beautiful prints are right up my alley/in my wheelhouse/my cup of tea… you get the picture.
Typeseat by Tim Fishlock
First, Fishlock’s Typeseat is a limited edition screenprint featuring classic chairs as the letters of the alphabet.
Here Tim explains some background to the edition:
“A lot of my work explores symbols and the idea of pictorial shorthand. I’m fascinated by the alphabet, how most of the letters began as pictures, icons from another era. Social and cultural change and aesthetic trends have been reflected in the Roman alphabet as it’s been refined over the centuries. Few objects reflect this cultural change as distinctly as the chair. An Eames lounger or a Panton chair are effective shorthand for the aesthetic trends of the day.
Typeseat is my attempt at creating a pictorial alphabet made up of some of the most iconic chairs of the twentieth century.”
A limited edition of 300 prints available.
Dimensions: 50 x 70cm
