Donald Judd
Furniture: 1982 -1992


  The Metal Furniture

Judd's furniture–at the crossroads both of the design world's interest in minimalism and the art world's interest in furniture designed by artists–is well known in both.  Judd's theories about architecture, both through his writings and through the buildings in New York, Marfa, Texas, and Switzerland, have been extremely influential.  His first essay into furniture was the Double Coffee Table of 1970; that thinking and development continued until the end of his life.  These are only a few of many works designed by Judd that is still being fabricated by the wood and metal workers who made the furniture during his lifetime.
