NEW YORK, APRIL 2016 – The Future Perfect is pleased to present Constructs & Glitches, a collection of new work by contemporary designer Christopher Stuart. Stuart’s debut show at The Future Perfect will be held alongside the launch of Equalizer, a new lighting concept by Dylan Davis and Jean Lee of Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, created in collaboration with glass artist John Hogan. The exhibition will open on May 6th, in conjunction with the citywide festival NYCxDESIGN.
Constructs & Glitches by Christopher Stuart
Constructs & Glitches showcases the intentional and unintentional distortion of furniture forms. As Stuart was experimenting with the “constructs” of his new collection, he repeatedly encountered “glitches” with the CAD software. Rather than work around these errors, he instead embraced and exploited them, incorporating the “glitches” into his collection. In celebrating these unusual forms, Stuart brings together the functional and non-functional to create works that challenge our traditional notions of what furniture should be.
Created exclusively for The Future Perfect, the Constructs & Glitches collection consists of the Zigzag Bench in mirror polished stainless steel, Chamfer Table 1 in brass, and Chamfer Table 2 in aluminum. Two sculptural Glitches round out the collection; Glitch 1 in mirror polished bronze and Glitch 2 (a desk) in blackened steel. Stuart’s acclaimed U Bench will also be on display in bronze, a never-before-seen finish for the piece.
