Manifold was conceived by Ross and Elizabeth Fiersten to engage in the ongoing conversation occurring between art and design, makers and manufacturers.
Located at 4426 N Ravenswood Ave in Chicago, 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.
As a studio specializing in the design and production of refined metal furniture and accessories for the past 15 years, Manifold's collection explores the space between sculptural form and functional object. From expertly finished joints to uniquely patinated surfaces, it is the natural qualities of metal that guide the design process.
In addition to fabricating furniture and sculpture on-site, Manifold occasionally features gallery exhibitions and events highlighting contemporary artists and designers.
Open to the public during exhibitions on Fridays 12-6pm, or by appointment: 773.754.7186
