High/Low: Donald Judd Daybed

December 4, 2009

Devotees of sculptor Donald Judd know the appeal of his deceptively simple, geometric furniture. According to gallerist Louisa Guinness, "Judd was very insistent that his furniture should not be seen as artist’s furniture but as everyday furniture. ‘I’m very touchy about it being considered art,’  he said. ‘To me, the chairs and benches are perfectly comfortable. I think the thing to do is either sit up or lie down; I’m not sympathetic to in-between positions.’"
