Dakota Jackson Plans a Retrospective Exhibition of Archival Pieces at His Los Angeles Showroom
When Dakota Jackson launched his studio in 1972, he catered to such creative New York clients as Yoko Ono and Diane von Furstenberg who sought expertly crafted furniture that blurred the line between art and design. Jackson, a former magician and dancer, obliged with the likes of the tempered-glass Self-Winding cocktail table from 1978 and the lime-tinted acrylic DB table from 2000. For his 50th anniversary, Dakota plans to mount a retrospective exhibition of these archival pieces as well as host talks and receptions this spring at his Los Angeles showroom. Then there’s his recent Chess collection, including the Bento vitrine, Chess tables, and the Checkerboard chair. The multitalented Jackson has even more up his sleeve: pianos. Following his recent Lang Lang Black Diamond grand for Steinway & Sons, the designer will launch the Dakota Jackson Piano Company next year.
