City Scenes: Chicago Factories by David Harmantas

Over the weekend I put together a post for a Design Milk “Friday Five” column that features furniture designer Jason Lewis‘ inspirations. One of the Chicago-based designer’s pics is the U.S. Adhesives building in an industrial neighborhood near his studio. I was quite taken with the photograph and how it evokes the country’s industrial roots. The photographer, David Harmantas, posted the series, taken on Chicago’s Kinzie Street industrial corridor, on his blog, Inexorable Solitude: The Cycle the Ghost Round. There were also similar images on his Flickr photostream.
