Interpretations in Furniture

Interpretations in Furniture

Elsa Hoffman, Scott Howell, Evan Berding, Meredith Hart

November 24 – December 5, 2015

Four independent furniture makers based in a wood shop in Chapel Hill challenged each other to build pieces that serve four basic functions: provide a surface to place something upon, a structure to sit on, a space to enclose artifacts, and an object to provide illumination. Beyond those specifications, they allowed each other to take their work in whichever direction and personal aesthetic they chose.

This exhibit not only illustrates their technical abilities, but highlights the vast variation that can result from four people blurring the boundaries between functional object and fine art.
