    Archival inkjet pigment print on premium luster paper

    High quality archival fine art print of my Fold Chair (2022). The fold chair is a suggestion of a springy stool, entirely made of off-cuts of unfinished carbon steel, that has been welded and riveted together into a folded 90′ ribbon, and will ultimately become the base of a table. When overturned its length becomes variable and flexible. As a stool it is bouncy to sit upon, and the upper layers cradle the bum, making it surprisingly comfortable and activated. The photograph was taken with the help of Philip Tian, and the other first year students in the 3D Design department. Unframed. Signed edition of 10.

    Breanne Johnson is an artist and self-taught new designer living and working in Detroit, Michigan. She holds Bachelor of Art degrees in Visual Art and Political Science from the University of Chicago. Born in California, Breanne shares citizenship with the United States and the island country Curaçao. Her design work focuses on phenomenological home items and furniture that examines our relationship to the social and physical spaces we inhabit. She enjoys thinking about the home, broadly, as an ever-changing and malleable space. As both an artist and designer, Breanne identifies strongly as a creative problem solver, and grapples with a diverse range of problems through a diverse range of media; she has been, and remains, a carpenter, a painter, a filmmaker, a performance artist, a host, a landscape artist, a space-maker, a clothing designer, a printmaker, a metalworker, a ceramicist, a sculptor, a writer, an archaeologist, a cook and a sandwich artist. She would like her various projects and investigations to grant her the freedom to play. She has exhibited work at Logan Center Exhibitions, Detroit Is The New Black, and in the 2021 Cranbrook Chair Show. Breanne recently participated in Chop Wood Carry Water residency in northern Illinois. Currently an MFA candidate in the 3D Design Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Breanne is slated for graduation in 2023.
