Finished in Kruger’s signature black, white and red, this bespoke stool was produced in an initial multiple of 300 with a final continuation of a further 300. Each stool is hand-numbered and finished on the underside with the artist’s stamp of authenticity.
Kruger’s Untitled (Kiss) forms the starting point of a new collaboration between the ICA and Finnish furniture company Artek, which will result in a series of artists’ customisations of Stool 60.
Barbara Kruger says:
‘This project has been a wonderful opportunity to work with Aalto’s classic piece of modernist furniture, while at the same time supporting the ICA, the first institution that offered me a one-person show of my work in 1983. I was honoured, a bit intimidated, but hugely thrilled by both the ICA and the complex and vital city that was, is, and will always be London. The memory of that exhibition, the wonderful space, the excitement and buzz of the ICA’s programme of visuality and intellectually rigorous public programming, its bookstore and crazily cool cafe, will never fade in my mind.’
