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.

2010 gallery piece underway

I’m designing a chair for the 2010 360SEE Gallery On the Wall/Floor show this fall.  I’m covering the chair with strips of used tire material.  I’m really excited about what my first material test revealed.  The texture is great and the material is actually soft… it should help create a really comfortable chair.
