Avant-Garde Canadian Furniture Designer to be Featured in New York Gallery
Designs from an up-and-coming Canadian furniture designer will be featured in a prestigious New York Gallery. The Craig Van Den Brulle gallery is located in the SoHo, New York City.
Troy Smith creates a fusion of enduring materials in his designs, even molding some pieces that date back to the Fifteenth Century.
Smith's one-of-a-kind, limited-edition pieces are composed of materials such as rare marble, bronze, exotic wood, artisan glass and leather, all used in unexpected ways. He has garnered attention from individuals with a taste for innovative, boundary-pushing contemporary design. The pieces from the eclectic Rebar Collection are almost sculptural. Be it a table, mirror or bench, the remarkable pieces embody meticulous craft and inventive design.
Smith mixes iconic creations in art and design with emerging trends to enter a third plane of design. He grew up building homes with his father. In his Rebar collection, Smith uses the steel re-enforcing bars used to strengthen concrete in unique ways combined with his other source material and painted vividly to give form to the previously unremarkable.
