SHAPE: An Ongoing Legacy of Michigan Design

NEXT:SPACE partners with TOM GIBBS STUDIO to present a juried exhibition featuring a curated selection of original mid century masterpieces alongside furniture and objects from contemporary designers. As the culmination of the Michigan Design Icons program, Shape examines the diverse range of innovation in design that is born in Michigan from form to fabrication, from materials to method.

Shape celebrates iconic designs from Michigan’s history, providing new perspective on their significance for the 21st century.

Shape builds a catalogue of new icons, curating a selection of contemporary design that carries the legacy of innovation in Michigan and beyond.

Shape is an annual design exhibition, creating an ongoing record of the evolution of Michigan furniture design.

Dates, details and exhibition call to be published in February 2018.
