Founded in Seattle in 2008 as a means of giving the local design community a bigger and more united voice, JOIN has since expanded to the Pacific Northwest and beyond to include 50+ independent designers and studios from across the United States.
At Sight Unseen OFFSITE in New York, JOIN presented the group show REFLECT, showcasing a curated selection of 16 objects from independent designers and studios across the United States. Designers including, Eric Trine, Melanie Abrantes, John Hogan, Fruitsuper and others, debuted one-of-a-kind objects within the theme of REFLECT, each made from a single material. A grid arrangement of column-like pedestals gave each object its sense of place, while the grid as a whole created a dramatic sum of parts. To tie the exhibition space together we created a custom vinyl wall display and a dynamic print piece to promote the objects.
To promote 3 Rooms, a pop-up show curated by studio e, we created full event branding, including a poster, tote and digital assets.
In conjunction with Interior Design Showcase–Vancouver in Fall 2016 we created vinyl signage and event branding for PLUS–Tools for Sitting. PLUS is a curation of seating from 10 studios across the United States. Designed to be “more than just a seat,” these stools center around a common theme, size, and material restrictions. This collection of one-of-a-kind seating showcases a wide variety of functionality, scale, and materiality within the given constraints. We created branding, print collateral.
