Synergistic Synthesis XVII Sub b 1 Chair by Kenneth Smyte


Meet Kenneth Smyte, although you may know him already as a prolific commenter to this blog [added: See for instance here, here and here].

This Synergistic Synthesis XVII Sub b 1 Chair was sold at Wright for $ 3,125 which is higher than the estimated $ 2,000 – $ 3,000. Congratulations Ken!

For one reason or another Ken refuses to maintain his own web presence (I mean other than as a commenter here and there). I wonder if his attitude towards the internet is the same as this guy’s….hope he will explain his position sometimes.
