“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 is an effective shorthand for the aesthetic trends of the day.
Typeset is my attempt at creating a pictorial alphabet made up of some of the most iconic chairs of the twentieth century.”
