ReDesign


On April 2nd I went to Urban ReThink (625 E Central BlvdOrlando, FL) for an evening discussion, facilitated by Adam Call, the Herman Miller Collection National Lead and Curator. The evening featured prerecorded conversations with mid-century design icon George Nelson. George's legacy, and approach to design were discussed, along with the processes that helped define post-World War II modern design. When I entered, Adam apologized letting me know that the time posted for the event was wrong. The discussion was wrapping up.

Several sleek chairs were on display across the room so I assume George was a furniture designer. With the talk over, I continued to sketch as people got up and mingled. I did catch Adam reading one reminiscence where George discussed a brain storming session where sketches were done and each designer jumped in to contribute ideas. It would have been nice to learn more about Georges creative process.


Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com
