The Future Perfect gallery program has collaborated with Seattle-based artist John Hogan to produce a new series of exclusively commissioned glass furniture and sculptures. Launching in New York on May 1 to coincide with Frieze New York and NYCxDESIGN, the new designs will be presented as an experiential installation that will transport viewers to The Future Perfect’s new Los Angeles outpost – Casa Perfect – through virtual reality technology.
Hogan’s debut solo exhibition at The Future Perfect will feature one-of-a-kind glass sculptures and his first foray into furniture design, notably a limited edition series of tables that fuse hot glass sculpting and cold-working techniques, allowing Hogan to manipulate the material in both molten and solid states.
The Future Perfect will invite gallery visitors to escape New York and experience the work in the context of their new Los Angeles space, Casa Perfect, through the use of virtual reality technology. While the designs will physically be on view in New York, VR headsets will transport viewers to Casa Perfect, a 3,000 square foot house designed by Korean-American architect David Hyun in 1957. Hogan’s work will be virtually exhibited throughout the private residence (open by appointment only) utilizing Casa Perfect’s open floor plan, ample outdoor space, swimming pool, and sweeping views of Los Angeles as a backdrop.
