Wild Things is a collection of domestic designs that follow the principles of biophilic design, anti-design and post-disciplinary craft processes. Designed in the spirit of experimentation and imagination, this work taps into the phantasmagorical properties that our everyday furniture and objects can hold, if thought of outside the constraints of modernism and mass production. Using visuals borrowed from the natural world, Wild Things examines the outcome when biophilic design is placed within a handmade design process.

 

Vanessa Lee Jackson is a designer and maker who creates furniture and objects which exist at the intersection between display and use. Her works showcase the properties that a practical object can hold through the use of conceptual forms. Vanessa’s intent is to open up the participant’s perception into the realm of the possible, rather than settling on a fixated meaning. She succeeds at this by integrating imaginative ornamentation into her furniture forms, highlighting that their aesthetics are just as important as their function.

 

Vanessa is currently pursuing her MDes at OCAD University and is an instructor in the Craft & Design Furniture program at Sheridan. She lives and works in Toronto.
