A traditional armchair is brought into the 21st century with allusions to the skyscrapers of New York City. Exhibiting artists and designers, Antonio Pio Saracino, Adam Goodrum, Kenan Wang and Anna Carey, reinterpret traditional furniture forms and aesthetics utilising contemporary technology and modelling techniques to realise objects in modern synthetic materials and formats. Their work draws on a number of cultural influences from social history, memory and traditional craftsmanship techniques to reinterpret modern architectural and design styles in a contemporaneous way.
CURATOR: Barbara Dowse
