For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego.

Over the years, Tables, Chairs & Other Unrelated Objects has become a growing tradition within the school’s design department. For its seventh edition, the exhibition will be hosted at Artscape Daniels Spectrum for the first time, while OCAD U’s Ignite Gallery will concurrently showcase works from this past year’s cohort selected with the input of our long time sponsor and the furniture design faculty (Connie Chisholm, Kirsten White, Ted Hunter, and Gord Peteran).

This exhibition was made possible by the generous contributions of Monarch Custom Plywood, Artworkers Retirement Society, Keilhauer, and Artscape.
