Portland is home to some incredible furniture designers and master craftsmen who have been producing truly innovative pieces over the years. ShowPDX: A Decade of Portland Furniture Design is a new exhibition coming soon to the Museum of Contemporary Craft. You'll have the chance to see award-winning designs from ShowPDX, the biennial juried furniture show presented by fix studio that started in 2002 and was the first of its kind in Portland.
Opening October 31, 2014 and running through February 1, 2015, the exhibition offers a comprehensive view of the state of millennial furniture design in Portland. It will be a chance to celebrate the makers as well as the sense of community that ShowPDX has fostered over the years.
Show2014 will display over 60 examples of unusual and stimulating furniture design while providing designers/fabricators/makers with a place and resource for peer and public recognition, support and dialogue. The exhibition will include work by Esque, Ghilarducci Studio, David Laubenthal, Kari Merkl, Phloem Studio, and many more.
ShowPDX: A Decade of Portland Furniture Design is presented by Museum of Contemporary Craft in partnership with Pacific Northwest College of Art and curated by acting director Nicole Nathan, with Jennifer Jako and Chris Bleiler from fix studio.
