Evan Fay is an American designer from Traverse City, MI. His most known art furniture works are the Lawless collection including a Chair and a Bench.
He received a BFA in 2014 from Kendall College of Art and Design studying furniture design, and an MFA in 2016 from the 3D design department at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Fay’s studio practice/workshop are based in Detroit, Michigan.
Lawless Chair is a celebration of irregularity within a system, pursuing a more artful form that responds to the chaotic landscape within our structured society. A punk aesthetic contextualizes a poetic moment to reflect and voice through design, an attitude towards our hectically evolving environments and contemporary dilemmas.
Taking ownership of truthful possessions, finding comfort in dystopia, and beauty in chaos may be a confronting reality, and opportunity to embrace new expressions in design.
His pieces will be exhibited at the Cranbrook art Museum from May 12, 2017, to January 14, 2018, in an exhibition called A New Domestic Landscape.
