Birth of the Cool

Our Lotus Chair is on tour with the Orange County Museum of Art’s exhibition “Birth of the Cool: California Art, Design, and Culture at Midcentury.” The exhibition examines the broad influence of art in California during the 1950’s and 1960’s.  Like the furniture Harry Bertoia and Charles and Ray Eames, the Lotus Chair by Miller Yee Fong utilized the clean curves and minimalism of the time.
