        Sonnenzimmer is a Chicago-based art and screen printing studio run by Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. They have had somewhat of an elastic existence in their 7 year history. Beginning as a shared painting studio, equipped with industrial screen printing equipment, the venture quickly morphed into a design and print studio specializing in hand-crafted posters and design work for some of the city’s most recognized cultural institutions. As image making is becoming more and more present in commerce and enjoying a true revival in both painting and printmaking, as well, they hope their mixture of fine and applied art will be looked at as complimentary assets. Their practice is rooted in idiosyncratic imagery and experimentation which is achieved through an improvisational design approach. This is explored through many lenses – may it be of collaborative, experimental, or commercial nature. Sonnenzimmer’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with a recent exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (2011). Their work has been published in books by Gestalten, Princeton Architectural Press, Gingko Press, The Pepin Press, and Rockport Publishers. Their poster work can be found in collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Design and Architecture Department, the Museum of Design Zürich, Plakatraum, and the University of Maryland, The Art Gallery. Their artist’s books are also at home in Stanford Art and Architecture Library, and Vanderbilt University, to name a few.
