This body of work aims to articulate tension. Tension exists in forms that are both seen and unseen whether that tension lives within the body or is around us due to a shifting world. Tension can push us forward but it can also hold us back.

As a Nigerian American designer, Nifemi Ogunro bridges the gap between design, social issues, and sustainability. Nifemi use’s photography and performance as a way to articulate this work. Their work has been featured in Wallpaper Magazine and Interior Design Magazine. Nifemi defines their style as “functional sculptures”.

The Pacific Northwest, where I grew up, is as moody and mysterious as it is beautiful and sublime. These pieces are projections of my unreconciled relationship with that landscape and the many worlds layered within it.

Franklin Arkadiyovich Ayzenberg
Arkady Chair, 2021
Chair
Plywood, foam, acrylic enamel
22 in x 38 in x 24 in 

The Arkady Chair is named after both my father and his uncle. My father’s uncle was murdered by nazis before his 18th birthday, and my father fled the USSR due to religious persecution before his 18th birthday. The Arkady Chair is an ode to both young men and their fantasies, dreams, and aspirations. The form and color were found through my ability to actualize my dreams, a privilege my father was handed upon entering the USA, but my great uncle was never granted.

Franklin Ayzenberg is a designer based in Brooklyn New York. His work explores alternative materials, fantasy, and post-modernism.
