Recess is a non-profit Art Space. Their programs reimagine traditional studio, exhibition, and classroom platforms, offering artists, audiences, and program participants flexible frameworks in which to generate new works and ideas.
For their new headquarters in the Brooklyn Navy yards, we produced custom furniture designed space layouts for the public spaces and private offices. Low-budget, great flexibility and ease to replicate, were the design objectives. Common construction materials are the components for all the furniture. A steel element, the Recess Leg, adds a detail to an otherwise standardized material assembly. A square peg in a round hole. It is installed in different heights to create desks, benches, sofas. This array of furniture forming components allows Recess to compose various configurations for both work and public viewing. As Recess grows and expands, these furniture can be easily reproduced and rearranged to fit new needs.
