For his first solo exhibition at Gallery Diet, Miami-based designer Emmett Moore will be presenting a series of limited edition furniture objects. This body of work continues his investigation into natural and man-made patterns that draw out the differences between reality and illusion, façade, and structure. Moore uses the tenets of furniture fabrication to draw attention to construction methods and the geometric references in the natural patterns of his chosen materials.
In the Projects Room, the exhibition continues with a collaboration between Emmett Moore, Chris Johnson, and Conor Klein. This ongoing project spans three cities; Miami, London, and New York bringing form to conversations about the role of appearances and tradition in design culture and exploring the way illusion plays into functional objects.
