ICFF Report: Cranbrook Academy of Art Exhibit

May 21, 2009

From Julie & Francesca:

Amid the whirl of pattern and color at the ICFF, a display of prototypes by graduate students in the 3-D Design Department at the Cranbrook Academy of Art caught our eye. We especially liked the simple wood stools by Bob Turek and the wood coat rack by Isaac Yu Chen. Go to Innate Gestures for more information.

Above: Bob Turek’s Stool #02. "Using the language of a standard bar stool, this tall version creates a minimal stage for musicians or performers," Turek says. We can also envision the Stool #02 as a witty towel rack in a kitchen or bath.

Above: Bob Turek’s Bench #07 has a noble mission: "The proportions and subtle design detailing of this bench work together to keep the user focused and engaged by stimulating an upright posture."

Above: Here’s what Chen says about his coatrack: "In the same manner that we lean a broomstick against the wall, this design investigates the gesture of pivoting the stick in order to access the hanging clothing."
