McMasterpieces is a temporary exhibition curated by Monica Khemsurov, who invited New York designers to create finished furniture pieces out of components from McMaster-Carr, an industrial parts supplier. Constantin and Laurene Boym, for example, have contributed an industrial coat rack modified with metal-filled repair epoxy. In Todd Bracher's Stick, a flashlight combines with copper wire and various diameters of aluminum tubing to form a lamp inspired by walking stick insects and deep sea fish.
Participants include: Lindsey Adelman, Ross Menuez, Constantin and Laurene Boym, Jason Miller, Leon Ransmeier, Sebastian E., Todd Bracher, Kristin Victoria Barron, Paul Loebach, Rich Brilliant Willing, Dror Benshetrit, Le-Bom, and Commonwealth. Pictured here are Coat Rack from Timeless Objects by Constantin and Laurene Boym, a nightstand from Kristin Victoria Barron, 34 Grams from Dror Benshetrit and Stick from Todd Bracher.
