Contemporary Design

Contemporary Design focuses on the present and future in design unlike the modern period that refers to a previous era. Previous styles and eras continue to influence the contemporary period, but are not exact copies of styles and objects. Globalization has influenced Contemporary Design as ideas are able to be translated easily and quickly than ever before. Contemporary Design should ask viewers where design will lead next.

Our spaces are reflections of who we have been, who we are, and who we are becoming. We believe that the objects we surround ourselves with have meaningful impact on the lives we lead, and it is our mission to empower people to find and experiment with objects that move them, resourcefully, sustainably, and freely.
