Misha Kahn: Furniture Unhinged

New York
Sale Total USD 166,875

18–24 AUG 2021

Sale Overview

For this first-ever design NFT sale offered by a major auction house, Christie’s partnered with acclaimed nonconformist Misha Kahn (b. 1989), a material polymath whose irreverent approach encompasses a wide range of techniques and tools, from lo-fi collage and improvisational molds to virtual reality and robotics. Furniture Unhinged presents ten NFTs, each comprising a unique 3D model rendered as an FBX file together with a corresponding MP4 single-channel “trophy” video of the object spinning on a pedestal.

Each lot represents an individual frame captured from a thirteen-second source animation by Kahn, whose biomorphic protagonist morphs through various furniture types and functions within a virtual, off-world architectural space.

In a departure from previous NFT-based artworks, the owner of each of the present lots may 3D-print as many physical examples of their FBX as they would like, and/or they may commission one unique, authentic example which Kahn will render in PETG thermoplastic polyester, epoxy, and paint. The ninth lot, It Must Have Been The Clams, is accompanied in the current sale by a real-life example.
