“I remembered going to see Lynch about the lifetime award and finding him in his studio planning furniture,” said curator Antonio Monda. “I was really intrigued. I learned that he does this and it's much more than just a hobby, it's something he believes in."

Lynch soon agreed to take part in the fair, and he came up with the idea of “Thinking Rooms”—an installation in which two identical spaces reflect each other and are designed to create a place for contemplation amid the chaos of the world.

The design uses only four colors: red, black, blue, and gold. The curator calls them “Lynchian colors,” but also draws parallels between the palette of the space and that of the artist James Lee Byars.

The interiors are hidden behind thick blue curtains. Lynch's passion for woodworking and furniture making is obvious—even though he did not physically make these items himself, he worked alongside artists at Milan's Teatro Piccolo.

In keeping with his typical work, symbols are hidden throughout, and the space is filled with motifs that have greater meaning, from clocks to mirrors.

In the center of the room is a huge wooden chair filled with paper and crayons for visitors to sit on and draw.

“Landscapes, and therefore furniture, come to life with Lynch—they are not just a background or an object. They have their own personality,” adds Monda.
