best known for his works inspired by icons of modernism and design, artist tom sachs has been making one-off pieces as part of his sculptural practice for more than 30 years. by using modest studio materials, the artist fabricates parallel universes that come together through semi-functional sculptures. for the 2019 edition of frieze new york, tom sachs continues his collaboration with salon 94 design to bring his iconic shop chair in a new and sleek colorway — gray.

in groups, as pairs, or even as a single piece, tom sach’s gray shop chair exclusive for salon 94 design is fully assembled in maple and plywood with a water-based lacquer, rubber flex-mounts, and stainless steel screws. available in a limited series of 200 — although already sold out — the shop chair has been hand-engraved and sequentially-numbered with a plate. overall, the seating object represents the artist’s playful yet functional approach to art as a useable and practical object.

for frieze new york 2019, sachs also created salon 94 design’s booth where a large scale marquetry painting of family guy welcomes guests. this is an exemplary of the artist’s interest in combining popular icons with a handcrafted aesthetic. on show, booth visitors will be able to appreciate the shop chair as well as a model sixty one, a revamped boombox fully equipped with a machete.
