Drawing, Dakota Jackson, New York; 1992: acquired by the Museum, 1990

This is a Drawing. It is dated 1990 and we acquired it in 1992. Its medium is graphite, colored pencil on yellow tracing paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Dakota Jackson's "vik-ter" chair is the result of the desire to produce an elegant looking chair that can be stacked, that is comfortable, and that can be produced and sold at a moderate cost. Its wooden seat and back are padded with flexible rubber connectors at their joinings to the metal frame. Robotic technology is used in the manufacturing process to reduce costs.

It is credited Gift of Dakota Jackson.

Its dimensions are

H x W: 30.5 × 31.7 cm (12 in. × 12 1/2 in.)

It is inscribed

Inscribed in graphite at upper right: A18; at left margin: Breaking Line higher up; measurements and notes; on verso at lower right: DAKOTA JACKSON
