Alumnus Andy Gregg’s Lounge Chair Featured in Green Furniture Exhibition

School of Art and Design alumnus Andy Gregg’s S-2 HC lounge chair is included in the Green Furniture Exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum that runs through March 14, 2010. This handcrafted furniture is made from recycled and reused bicycles that are designed and produced by him at his Bike Furniture Design manufacturing studio located in Marquette, Michigan.

The Green Furniture Exhibition explores how 21st-century furniture makers seek to modify our aesthetic expectations—especially when it comes to forms that are multifunctional, recyclable, or made of alternative materials. Work by contemporary artists is featured alongside historical objects, exploring roots of the green idea in furniture design. Green Furniture also focuses on the concept of sustainable design, which centers not only around a responsible use of materials and methods of manufacture but also on issues of object life span, energy usage, and recycling/disposal.
