Ply-Ability

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

There’s a very interesting exhibition coming up at Napier’s Hawke’s Bay Museum & Art Gallery, about New Zealand’s plywood studio furniture history. Ply-Ability opens on the 12th of December and will run until June, so hopefully time enough to venture up to the vintage city for a visit.

From Garth Chester’s significant Curvesse chair from 1944, over DIY pieces, to works by contemporary designers, this exhibition explores the innovation and change in plywood furniture design.¬† Wellington’s furniture designer and plywood specialist Duncan Sargent has been selected to take part in the exhibition with his Coffee Drawer coffee table – a brilliant piece of work.
