Artist Review: Chul An Kwak

Korean designer Chul An Kwak aims to inject furniture with dynamic emotion in his 'r.n.i' series of work.
The series is based after images of running horses that motivated him to create furniture. I really like the sweeping forms of the furnitures. It looks like as though the pieces are going to walk away from the viewers.

Arist Review: Garry Knox Bennett

Bennett is an American artist and furniture maker. He is known for making whimsical and unconventional uses of materials. What I like about his work is that I can see different characteristics and personalities in each of his furnitures. Garry's work is represented in many private collections as well as the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Mint Museum of Art+Design, NC, Museum of Art and Design, NY.

Artist Review: Gord Peteran

Gordon Peteran is an abstract furniture maker and sculptor. He is known for making products that are between furniture design and sculpture. I find his works witty and conceptually intriguing. His furnitures seem to be nonfunctional: The table doesnt seem to hold objects and the chairs are not made for sitting.
