Catalogue Note

"Don’t denigrate duct tape, think of it as a badge of honor.  It is a little piece of humanity.  It is not something we should hide.  It should not be banished.  After all, it’s there because of us."

-Jason Miller

 

Jason Miller designs furniture that highlights and proclaims intentional flaws.  A similar example of the “Duct Tape” chair is included in the Design Life Now exhibition currently on view at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.  This lot is a special edition displaying a variant tape configuration and is the first chair to be executed completely in leather.
