This print could be our flag...

"I just wrapped up a personal project that’s been on my backburner for some time, an illustrated collection of my favourite iconic mid-century modern furniture. Included are designs by Eames, Jacobsen, van der Rohe, le Corbusier, and more, forty pieces in all. It started as a project to develop my editorial illustration – to find a way of working with a certain character, tone & simplicity – for when things need to be communicated more abstractly than with the objectivity of technical illustration", explains James Provost, an artist/illustrator, specialized in highly detailed and accurate illustrations of science and technology subjects.

And here are some closeups of the illustrations :
