Dan Johnson (1918–1979)
While other postwar California furniture designers explored futuristic paraboloid forms and free-form biomorphic shapes, Dan Johnson looked back to Roman antiquity to find inspiration for his signature furniture pieces.
In the mid-1950s, he moved to Rome and opened Dan Johnson Studio, designing furnishings that, as he later wrote to a friend, took “a modern approach to the ancient Roman stuff I appreciated so much.” The pieces are marked by their elegant sculptural quality.
