A short interview with designer Stephen Burks, of Stephen Burks Man Made, on the occasion of 1:54 New York 2016 – where he designed the 1:54 Lounge and presented pieces with Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, from Seattle, USA.
For 1:54, Burks brought together several of his Material Compositions designs with his Ahnda lounge seating collection for outdoor furniture manufacturer Dedon. Many of these designs have been presented for the first time. Large-scale recycled carpets completed the lounge installation. Like islands of patchwork, color and pattern, the Material Composition Lounge was both functional and imaginative.
