"The Box and the Curve"


The Box and the Curve, an exhibit at the New England School of Design at Suffolk University Feb 2 through 16, 2009, features the work of two furniture designers who combine art and artisanship in their work.

Mark Del Guidice and David Sears, cutting-edge designers of modern furniture, will discuss their work from 1 to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 10 at the art school gallery.

About the artists

Sears designs furniture with a mind to both the environment and superb design. His recent work explores modularity, and the exhibit will feature his Cube furniture collection. Sears’s lecture will focus on the importance of material selection and manufacturing techniques for his eco-conscious line.

Del Giudice's furniture designs emphasize form, surface and distinctive content. He carves hieroglyphic-like markings and quotations in Morse code into the furniture’s surface and employs both color and fine woods.

Both Sears and Del Guidice have taught in the Interior Design Program at the New England School of Art and Design.
