For Design Miami 2019, The Future Perfect recreated the gallery’s singular point of view in a booth that emphasized materiality – both natural and quixotic; experimental process; and a sense of the sublime. The booth – designed with cool neutral walls and natural fiber flooring – set the stage for the gallery’s roster of collectible artists. Eric Roinestad created a new series of mask-inspired ceramic works, which expanded in scale and detail. Celebrated glass artist John Hogan’s first cast-glass furniture scale work, “Clearing Chair,” paired luminescence with durability.
Injecting a sense of whimsy were figurative ‘Nalgona’ chairs from South American-based artist Chris Wolston. Walls were adorned with mirrors from Chen Chen and Kai Williams’ Geology Series. Following the success of his debut at Design Miami/ Basel, Floris Wubben presented new ceramic furniture, including a red glazed planter and a large scale glossy green dining table.
Fine artist Matthew Day Jackson, represented by Hauser & Wirth, presented studio-created furniture exclusive to The Future Perfect and Seungjin Yang’s whimsical and playful balloon chairs were also on view, with both artists making a much buzzed about debut at the fair.
