Mr Baughman’s designs are obviously built on the legacy of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer, but the use of modern-day materials, colors and American West Coast style make do for functional furniture which appealed, and was available, to a large public.

Memento Mori (remember that you can die) is the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.
