Continuing our exploration of raw industrial materials, ABSOLUTE BEIGE is a radical interpretation of the traditional living room set. The collection pairs a flexible polyurethane rubber, chosen for its resemblance to both amber and medical waste, with flesh-colored Corian slabs. Drawing inspiration from the photography of Thomas Demand and 1970s furniture catalogs, ABSOLUTE BEIGE offers an experience that is at once familiar and alien.
WINTERCHECK FACTORY is Kristen Wentrcek and Andrew Zebulon Williams. Located in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, the studio designs and fabricates an in-house furniture line alongside project specific installations. With experience in designing custom fixtures for retail, office and residential projects, the duo also produces ongoing independent showcases for contemporary artists and designers.
During NYCxDesign in 2016, the studio created “NYCxSkymall,” a group show of objects from 15 designers from across the US. Their most recent production in November, “TOUCHING”, showcased large sculptural works from five notable contemporaries, including themselves.
WINTERCHECK FACTORY has exhibited at ICFF and Sight Unseen OFFSITE, and has been featured in various publications including Wallpaper, Dwell and Hypebeast. Designs from the studio can also be found through Kinder Modern, WorkOf and 1st Dibs.
