Fifth Floor presents Looking for Work\, a show featuring fur niture by a select group of designers from the architecture and spatial des ign fields. With the pace of construction slowing drastically many archite ctural designers have turned their attention to smaller objects to satisfy the impulse to design as well as cope with the economic downturn. Some hav e forged out completely on there own while others supplement their time in the spatial design field by creating these beautiful but useful objects.
