‘It’s Hard to Find a Good Theory of Furniture’ examines the transformation of the beholder into a user in Judd’s furniture designs of the 1980s and 1990s. Research for the essay included conducting an interview with Judd’s main assistant Dudley Del Baso on both the design and fabrication process of his furniture. With details about Judd’s design and fabrication process established, the essay then proceeds to unpick Judd’s theory of furniture design as developed in his essay ‘It’s Hard to Find a Good Lamp’ (1993), finally examining its relationship to both the furniture designs and the writings of Charles and Ray Eames.
