Photo of the living room ceiling in #16/40 is inspired by E Fay Jones' previous work.
Mr Wagner's take on the Wright drafting stool was apparently based on a misunderstanding---identical to mine, initially---of the structure and appearance of the original. The only way to make the front-leg joinery viable, without the triangular gusset that unfortunately all but disappeared in the one photo he displayed as his inspiration, was to beef up the members, making an entirely different animal in the process.
The slope to the seat is peculiar to certain drafting-board seats and organ benches. The pitch counters the tendency of the user's hips to slide backward when leaning forward into his or her work. It would be most uncomfortable---well-nigh unusable---when employed as are most ordinary stools or seats.
What a gutsy interior. That floor ! What would you furnish this with ? Is there such a thing as brutalist furnishings ?
