Manifold was conceived by Ross and Elizabeth Fiersten in 2011 to engage in the ongoing conversation occurring in Chicago between art and design, makers and manufacturers. Located at 4426 N Ravenswood Ave, Manifold houses a storefront gallery and a manufacturing workshop. The direct connection between the gallery and the workshop reinforces Manifold's guiding mission: to overtly preserve the link from the object presented to the process of its crafting. In addition to producing and selling furniture and accessories on-site, Manifold features gallery exhibitions and events highlighting issues pertinent to contemporary artists and designers.
Formerly known as metal+works, Ross and Elizabeth Fiersten have been designing and building furniture and art in Chicago for over a decade.
