In September of 2017, Brooklyn studio Fernando Mastrangelo launched an experimental furniture exhibition that showcased the talents of emerging artists and designers. In 2018, the creative firm organizes a second edition. Dubbed ‘In Good Company/ Material Culture,’ these kinds of gatherings are important for a few reasons. For one, the initiative is incredibly beneficial to community-building and for networking purposes. Secondly, it truly gives young talent the opportunity to be noticed and to gain traction and inspiration for their career. Thirdly, such an endeavor also highlights experimental furniture that challenges conventional materials, aesthetics, and forms.
Fernando Mastrangelo’s ‘In Good Company/ Material Culture’ exhibit displays the effect of post-industrial materials and techniques in design. The experimental furniture display invites creatives like Aaron Blendowski, Jessica Martin, Erica Sellers, Brecht Grander, Dove Drury Hornbuckle and more.
