Messler Gallery announces Wooden Lamps exhibition

(US) Curated by internationally renowned furniture and lamp designer Christopher Poehlmann, the show brings together a wide spectrum of technique and concept.

Christopher Poehlmann explains: “over the past two decades of working in the worlds of design and fine craft, I have come across many fine examples of light fixtures made from wood, but rarely is there an opportunity such as this, to present theses beautiful pieces based on their materiality. I am so pleased to be able to bring this fine group of designers and makers together to show a cross section of the possibilities that wood offers as a medium to express light.”

This exhibition showcases the exemplary work of 23 makers from six countries and includes techniques ranging from delicate marquetry, CNC laser cutting and coopering to veneering, bending and turning, along with other traditional fabrication techniques.

The exhibition opens September 22, 2017 until January 3, 2018.
