In June, our CEO Toni Sikes presented on a panel at the Furniture Society Symposium in Durham, NC. The title of the panel was “Public Art: An Opportunity for Furniture Makers.”

Toni made the point that a growing trend in public art was commissioned work created by artists that served a functional purpose, such as flooring, lighting, signage, and seating. To illustrate her remarks, she presented a PowerPoint of 20 slides showing public seating created by artists and design professionals from around the world.
