Inspired by the harmony and balance found throughout nature,
the artists translated the concepts of organic forms and patterns into
children’s furniture and lighting elements that comprise this functional work.
tables and chairs are full of shapes and forms for children to discover. Children may recognize a leaf or a shape that
resembles a bone as they work or read at a table. Young children will discover seashells
hanging inside the transparent legs of other tables. Brightly colored chairs have been created
especially for younger and older children.
In addition, the artists also created wall and column structures that
provide the Children and Young Adult Section of the library with identity. The artists also created lighting elements
and special seating “environments” that allow parents and children to read together. These large, soft pieces contain shapes that
may suggest a snail shell, pea pod or dinosaur spine. The artists also created a kiosk that will
contain information on upcoming library and community events.
these colorful and unique pieces form a functional artwork designed to excite
children’s natural capacity for wonder and discovery.
