Ed Swan developed the Mark Makers table for The Visitor, an exhibition by Okay Studio that we wrote about earlier today. The table is coated in several layers of color, revealed when 'visitors' sand away bits of the surface. The table is starting to get really interesting, as you can see up top. Below, watch Ed make the very first mark, before the opening of the show. A few more shots of mark making in process after the jump.
Shai Akram met Andrew Haythornthwaite while studying at the Royal College of Art, the two now run their own design practice and are also members of the Okay Studio collective. Her projects cover creative direction and design for interiors, events, and furniture/product ranges. Shaiâ€™s work is a combination of practice and theory, translating research and ideology into objects and visual language. Her work has been exhibited internationally and projects have taken her to China, New Zealand and Italy- although Shai loves to travel, she secretly wishes she would stay in one place long enough to have a cat.
