Inspired by Midcentury: Vivian Beer is part 2 of a 5-part series featured in our July 2019 Special Edition newsletter.
"In my studio form follows imagination, and function is a script for where and how we interact with the things we live with."
Vivian Beer is a furniture designer/maker based in New England, where her studio, Vivian Beer Studio Works, is celebrating its tenth year. Her sleek, abstracted metal and concrete furniture combines the aesthetic sensibilities of contemporary design, craft, and sculpture to create furniture that alter expectations of and interface with the domestic landscape.
Beer, who studied at the Cranbook Academy of Art, itself an incubator of influential midcentury designers and architects, shares the people and pieces that have sparked her imagination.
