Lucky Number 7: Series Seven Chair by Arne Jacobsen-
Arne Jacobsen designed the series 7 chair in 1955.  It has been in continuous production ever since and has gone on to be one of the best selling chair designs of all time. Unfortunately it has also been one of the most copied and many inferior copies have been produced. Danish company Fritz Hansen have had the license to produce the chair since it was first launched and still produce the chair today. This image was taken at Gentofte City Hall.

Opens Dec 1, 7-9p: “Everything’s Alright Sweetie, Please Get Some Sleep” Joe SorrenJonathan LeVine Gallery, 529 W20th St., NYC (9th Fl)a series of new paintings by Joe Sorren, in what will be his first solo exhibition in New York. 

In the artist’s words, “I was painting a painting of a storm during our devastating storm, it was a very visceral time.” Of his work, he continues, “Since painting is a physical record of movement in time, brushstrokes are not unlike the grooves on a vinyl record—capturing not just the color and shape of a stroke, but the timbre; the energy and emotion experienced at the time it was painted. Thinking of this frees me up from the thought of being ‘accurate,’ and allows me to focus more on the essence of the piece.”  - thru Dec 29
