Curated by Tim Friar, director of business development at Design Central and owner of Grid Furnishings, The Modern Table: Ohio Furniture Designers showcases the works of 26 artists, including industrial designers, fine artists, furniture makers, engineers, an architect and others. The artists in the exhibition demonstrate how the process of modern furniture design surpasses a functional purpose and results in the construction of art pieces.
"Designers, in whatever time they live, design for their view of function and aesthetic appeal as they see it at that time. Modern furniture, however, has been viewed by many in retrospect as not only highly functional but as art," said Curator Friar. "The common theme in this exhibit is a passion for modern furniture design."
