Don’t you just love a good alphabet print? Oh, I do! Typeseat, a limited edition screen print by Tim Fishlock, uses classic chairs to represent the letters of the alphabet. Hello! Do you recognize all the chairs? The letter “T” does not look familiar to me, maybe I need to stand on my head to see it.
Here’s what the designer has to say about this work:
“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 are effective shorthand for the aesthetic trends of the day.
Typeseat is my attempt at creating a pictorial alphabet made up of some of the most iconic chairs of the twentieth century.”
Limited edition prints (300) are available only through twentytwentyone.
If shipping from the UK didn’t cost more than the print itself, I’d be ordering one in a second.
Have a fantastic weekend!
