Chair #236

—Designed by Dakota Jackson

In the 1970s Dakota Jackson was making unusual, one-of-a-kind furniture in his New York studio —like this lounge chair, which comes with a beautiful ottoman. Born into a family of magicians and performers, his early work had mysterious qualities, including hidden compartments and parts with unexpected movement. He earned recognition by major museums and led to commissions and collaborations well beyond his furniture showrooms. Besides designing furniture, you might have seen his one-of-a-kind martini glass in a print ad for Bombay Sapphire Gin. Slick.
