Make Room - Modern Design Meets Craft

Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft

Organized by the American Craft Council, Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft will celebrate the symbiotic relationship between craft and design.

On view at San Francisco's Fort Mason Center on August 2-4, the showcase will offer attendees a host of ideas on how to incorporate fine craft into their personal home decor.

"Part of the joy of collecting is incorporating fine craft into your home and we want to provide our American Craft Council show visitors with some great examples of how to do just that, using top designers from San Francisco," said Pamela Diamond, the American Craft Council's Director of Marketing and Communications.

"In addition, we want to expose the local design community to the high-end craft made by our makers, many of whom have reached the level of artisan through years of studying and working in a specific medium, teaching and having their work displayed in galleries and museums all over the world."

Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft will transform the show floor of the Fort Mason Center into a show-stopping setting of eight room designs that reflect the character of each carefully-selected, inspiring piece of craft.

Each designer will start with a blank, 10-by-8-foot white space and a beautiful craft piece made by a participating show artist.

Each room will give context to the handpicked pieces of fine craft, bringing the art to life while capturing the interior designers' and architects' unique styles, whether contemporary, classic, elegant, or eclectic.
