    The Reflecting Table is a low coffee table with an open basin that holds water, circulating at a delicate speed. Planar surfaces that intersect over the basin allow the coffee table to be used to hold a mug or book, but it is low to the ground to encourage floor-sitting alongside it, or even to function as an acoustic and light-reflective water sculpture in a home. (Sculpture not included)

    Exhibition history: Shown recently at Logan Center Exhibitions, Chicago.

    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 provisional architectures and furniture objects that examine our relationship to the social and physical spaces we inhabit. She studies her own lived experience and home life for moments and situations that cater to an expanded sense of living, be that through connection, reverence, intimacy or play, and builds her artistic practice by interrogating the objects that comprise her built landscape, asking to what extent they facilitate, stunt, or otherwise flavor our social, personal and interpersonal connections. Breanne was the recipient of awards to attend Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Ox-Bow School of Art this summer, and last summer was awarded the Pophouse Design Fellowship. She will have work included at WANTEDDESIGN art fair in New York this spring, and has recently shown work at I.M.Weiss Gallery, Logan Center Exhibitions, Detroit Artist Market, and the Ann Arbor Art Center. Currently an MFA candidate in the 3D Design Department, Breanne is slated for graduation in May.
