360SEE show 2010

In response to the success of last year’s show, “On the wall & On the floor”, 360SEE is returning with the annual design exhibition. Each artist and designer participating has created a free standing or table top piece and a piece for the wall.

All of the pieces on display in some way embrace the sustainably-minded media-choice philosophy of the gallery showing works constructed with reclaimed, repurposed, responsibly sourced, and even living materials.

Designer Leo Kempf, an “On the wall & On the floor” veteran, has traded in his cardboard furniture designs for newly designed pieces made of FSC certified Birch and repurposed tires . Kempf created a rocking recliner upholstered with tension woven reclaimed tire strips and a wall mantle inlaid with tire treads.

Fine art, functional art, and design pieces will also be on display by gallery represented artists and designers.
