NATE VAN HOOK PAINTS AN EAMES SHELL CHAIR!
The Good Mod has recently been working with admired artists and giving them some of their vintage Eames shell chairs to see what kind of new twists can be created on the classic and iconic design. This chair was given to local Portland Oregon artist Nathan Van Hook
The chair will be donated to the Tedx Perfect Talk and will be auctioned off to raise money for underprivileged kids so they can attend the talks (tickets are normally $100 each.)
The Tedx talk will be held at One Grand Gallery on April 12th 2014.

Inspired by Charles and Ray Eames, Hvidt and Orla Molgaard-Nielsen designed the first danish chiar, AX, with a seat and back made of double curved laminated wood. The AX chair was produced by Fritz Hansen; the laminate glueing technique they used was borrowed from the tennis racket industry. This discovery allowed furniture to be manufactured quickly and disassembled for shipping without compromising the quality. As a result the market for danish furniture expanded and eventually lead to Denmark's domination over the modern furniture industry.
