Christopher Stuart

Christopher Stuart is an American artist and designer recognized for his renegade creation process. Informed by minimalism and conceptualism, Christopher Stuart's designs focus on creating narratives through his use of process, materials and construction.

Stuart’s work is inspired by the undefined areas where art and design intersect, further challenging the idea of function. His pieces evoke an emotional response, challenging their role as furniture and inviting questions with their inherent design contradictions.

Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, Christopher started his career as a welder, while also pursuing art. Interested in design, he taught himself graphic design and found work as a prototype maker for an industrial design department; quickly working his way up to an industrial design position.

Constructs & Glitches, a range of limited edition and one-of-a-kind sculptural furniture, was the first comprehensive collection presented by Christopher Stuart. Regarding the genesis of the critically lauded collection, the artist stated: “I ask myself: what exactly is a function? And shouldn’t furniture meet our emotional needs as well.” These notions – and how they can be addressed in design – is represented in pieces such as the Chamfer Table 2 in Aluminum and the Zig Zag bench, both of which deconstruct and subvert familiar archetypes, forcing us to study them anew.

Stuart attended the Herron School of Art and Design and graduated in 2012 with a BFA in Furniture Design. He was recognized by Sight Unseen Offsite and listed on the American Design Hot List in 2014. In 2017, Stuart’s work was recognized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, when it acquired Glitch 1. The same year, he launched the ‘Drape Series’ as part of the USA pavilion at the London Design Fair.
