Description

Outside the Box – Chicago
ChicagoLand

Chicagoland is an ongoing exhibition of contemporary design work—created and executed in Chicago—in collaboration with local manufacturers. The show aims to showcase the best cross section of upcoming American designers in the midwest region. Chicago is a contemporary design hub defined by strong relationships that are built between designers and local manufacturing. By utilizing the rich knowledge of fabrication techniques within arms reach, Chicagoland designers are able to realize their metal, wood, glass and plastic design work with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
