ART OF BOARD VISITS MODERNICA FACTORY January 22 2015, 20 Comments
The Art of Board team recently visited one of the coolest and most authentic manufacturers of modern furniture design – Modernica in Los Angeles, CA. We obsess over design details, quality and process. So, it was a treat for us to tour a factory where attention to detail is paramount. And process is painstaking. What really blew our minds (besides everything) was the fiberglass shell chairs. Originally designed in 1948, they're one of the most important and recognizable designs of the 20th century. And now Modernica owns all the very same equipment from which the chairs were made in the 40s and 50s. All made one at a time...by hand...from 2 strands of fiberglass. Could there be an Art of Board x Modernica collaboration in the works? We'll see. Check out the video HERE.
