Notes


"A portrait of a moment in time. The seating surface “droops” in gradient from rested to exhausted, a result of both stress and progress. All rendered in brilliantly optimistic blue." - Benjamin Edgar 

Benjamin Edgar is a Chicago-based designer – though his extensive body of work spans beyond any one-word label, with projects rooted in industrial design, contemporary culture and environmentally conscious consumer goods. Fundamentally, Benjamin designs objects. His ongoing project, literally named "An Object Company", stands as the culmination of over a decade's worth of research and work with varying processes and products. He creates his objects out of anything ranging from cotton to marble, characterized by a mix of irreverence and intense attention to detail. Each piece – whether designed to wear or adorn the home – balances the useful with the useless, inviting an opportunity to learn, develop, and play. (Words of Benjamin Edgar)
