Join Objectspace to hear stories of furniture design and making in the 80s and 90s from those who experienced it first hand, including David Haig, Justine Olsen, John Shaw, Colin Slade, Neal Smith and David Trubridge.

Brought together from across the country, the group will discuss the studio furniture movement, the influential seven-year run of Artiture exhibitions and broader contexts that formed the rich design and making scene of the moment.

Anecdotes and differences of opinion guaranteed. Also your opportunity to hear from these makers about the works they have contributed to The Chair. For more information about event and the speakers, click here.
