Modernseed actually "leaked" their great-looking Chalker, a curvy, molded wood play table with a chalkboard surface, a few months back when they ran it in an ad in Dwell. Turned out that production wasn't quite ready yet, though, and unlike online advertising [>> like >> right >> over >> there] the archaic print industry's long lead times and poor results tracking couldn't keep up.
So when I finally saw the Chalker and the new, molded ply Chip chair at MoMA Design Store--they may be sold separately, but they go together like aloe wipes and baby butts--I had to give a shoutout. They're solid, elegant, and beautiful, with just a hint of mid-century design elements to make them feel like instant classics. [With its silhouette and chrome legs, the Chip seems so resolved and obvious (now), it feels like something the Eameses could've designed, but somehow totally missed.]
