Donald Judd

Stool 5

Donald Judd is often taken as the ultimate exemplar of the cross-disciplinary connection between fine art and design; his furniture strikes most people as an extraordinarily successful application of sculptural ideas in the realm of applied art. This is ironic, for Judd himself saw the two spheres as rigorously separate: “We try to keep the furniture out of art galleries to avoid this confusion, which is far from my thinking.” He had initially made functional objects solely for his own use, but eventually became interested in design as a discrete creative pursuit, creating numerous pieces of furniture for serial production from 1984 until his death in 1994. Judd Foundation and Donald Judd Furniture continue to produce these works today in the same manner as the artist established.
