Our Shapes & Masks
Functional Art Furniture Collection | Grason Ratowsky | Vobia
For this unique collaboration I wanted to communicate the concept of the exhibit “In Each of us There Are Many” into the art furniture collection to offer a cohesive and engaging experience to the viewers that is equally functional and conceptual. The vision was to create truly artistic furniture pieces that silently relate to and convey the concept of the show. The collection is designed using varying shapes, materials and abstract figures in an effort to communicate the different layers and versions of ourselves as modern humans. Hand carved traditional Korean Hahoetal masks were incorporated within the works as an interactive element and also to convey the notion that we as people wear different metaphorical masks given each scenario we are in to help our progression and forward movement in life. The series makes up individualistic pieces that are as unique and collectable as a one of kind work of art.
