Notes from the Archive: The essay by Peter Joseph and Emma Cobb is titled Slipper Chairs and Skirt Tables: The Art of John Dunnigan. They explore Dunnigan's sense of the past and how it informs his own practice as a designer and furniture maker. They quote him in explanation, "The only thing that hasn't been done before is my way of doing it or your way of doing it, and the only thing that makes it worth doing is to put your own soul or self into it. If you don't do that, it has been done." Dunnigan's furniture stands as masterful evidence of what had not been done before.
