It is important to examine how past craft movements have informed contemporary practice. By looking towards the Shaker movement, many designers, artisans, and craftspeople have found a distinct aesthetic informed by a philosophical practice.
This exhibition combines the work of Canadian designer Thom Fougere, Norwegian designer Hallgeir Homstvedt, and musician Jason Collett, along with museum-quality Shaker objects, to play off of each other and facilitate a conversation between antique and modern pieces. Focusing on use and necessity, these designers look to create products which communicate the idea of functional timeless design.
