School of Interiors professors Ingrid A. Schmidt and Hannah Dewhirst, also co-founders of SUBSTUDIO, have their piece “Home Beautiful” in the new exhibition, Never Normal, presented by Form & Seek and Design Core Detroit – Detroit Month of Design.
Referencing the dizzying, illusory domestic interiors of the 1970s, “Home Beautiful” plays upon this “more is more” aesthetic, blending and layering pattern, texture, scale, surface, and form. Typically divorced from their contexts, the historical versions of these interiors were curating capitalistic ideas around class and taste, making the profession of “decorating” an exclusive club that borrowed and stole from a multitude of sources.
The exhibition runs through December 12 with private viewing by appointment. For further details, visit https://www.formandseek.com/nevernormal.
