Co-owned and operated by Ross and Elizabeth Fiersten, Manifold is a studio that has been designing and producing refined metal furniture, sculpture, and accessories for the past 18 years.
While it is the natural qualities of metal that guide the design process, Manifold's expertly finished joints and uniquely patinated surfaces are significant points of pride. The current collection explores the space between sculptural form and functional object.
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 a guiding mission: to overtly preserve the link from the object presented to the process of its crafting.
In addition to fabricating furniture and sculpture on-site, Manifold curates and hosts an annual gallery exhibition highlighting contemporary artists and designers.
Open by appointment: 773.754.7186. During exhibitions, gallery is open to the public on Fridays 12-6pm.
