Tom Sachs is one of the most appreciated artists in that panorama of creative minds who manage to influence several disciplines simultaneously, putting them in continuous contact with each other. Among the New York-based artist’s works is an extensive production of furniture, made in that faux-rudimentary style of his, which seems to assemble everyday elements in a spartan manner, as a child would do when dreaming of grand designs in his bedroom.
Sachs’ passion for everything related to space is well known. For the first time in 20 years, however, the artist exhibited his series of home furniture, all hand-numbered and part of an unprecedented collection.

“Tom Sachs: Furniture” is on display at the Stony Islands Arts Bank in Chicago and will remain open until 4 September 2022.
All the furniture reflects Tom Sachs’ idea that even everyday objects have artistic value, and it is precisely the gestures we make in the domestic context that elevate the artistic significance of chairs, armchairs, lights or music speakers. It is the music that plays from the pink Miu Miu branded system that makes the speakers art.
References to pop culture could not be missing, inserted by the artist almost casually into his mixed media works. The materials range from solid wood to plywood, from aluminium to resin, diversifying the cuts, from more irregular ones to others that recover minimalism and clean, square lines.
