Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is the premier auction house to buy and sell Modern and Contemporary Art and Design.
Hugh Acton was an artist and designer, based primarily in Kalamazoo, Michigan, working in a style that blended the best of the American craft tradition and Scandinavian mid-century design. He is most known for his pioneering _Acton Stacker_ (the first stackable chair with arms) and his epochal wood and metal slat bench.
Acton was born in 1925 in Kansas City, Missouri and soon after adopted by a family who owned a farm and ranch in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. From a young age, he showed a penchant for building things and his time spent on the farm would influence his design ethos of simplicity in form and material.
