JOIN Design presents Make Use in partnership with Rejuvenation.
Make Use is a collection of objects for the home from 14 West Coast-based studios that celebrate the marriage of materiality and process, craft and purpose, form and function. This curated show highlights the independent design community; encouraging experimentation, blurring of boundaries and supporting emerging creative talent. This selection of objects showcase the raw honesty, simple straightforwardness, and beauty in utility associated with West Coast Craftsmanship. #MakeUse2017

Reflect is a curation of objects from 16 studios across the United States. These designs center around a common theme, size restriction, and single material use. Ranging from spiritual and meditative to visually expressive, this collection of one-of-a-kind objects draw both parallels and contrasts within the theme of Reflect.
Reflect was co-curated and designed by Fruitsuper Design and Melanie Abrantes Designs for JOIN Design. This show debuted at Sight Unseen OFFSITE as part of NYCxDESIGN week 2016.

At Sight Unseen OFFSITE, JOIN Design will present the group show REFLECT, showcasing a curated selection of 16 objects from independent designers and studios across the United States. Accepted designers will debut one-of-a-kind objects within the theme of REFLECT, each made from a single material. A grid arrangement of column-like pedestals will give each object its sense of place, while the grid as a whole will create a dramatic sum of these parts. In conjunction with display, JOIN will produce a limited-edition photographic catalog that will exhibit how and why each object was created and the designers behind them.
