Matthew Day Jackson, Made by Choice and Formica Group present Kolho, a collection of tables and chairs inspired by the moon. 

The collection, titled Kolho, after the Finnish town that first inspired Jackson, will comprise a series of dining tables and chairs manufactured from a Formica® surface that reimagines, to scale, the surface of the moon, designed by Jackson. 

The trip to Kolho quickly led to logical collaboration between Formica Group and Jackson. Those familiar with Jackson’s artistic practice will see this collaboration as inevitable – not just for his long history using Formica® laminate, but also because of the multi-media, immersive nature of his artwork and interest in community engagement. Together they developed bespoke steel press plates to create a textured laminate at 80 microns in depth that is a scale representation of the surface of the far side of the moon. This texture is derived from images taken from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter in 2009, launched in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing. Kolho’s debut will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of this landing
