I first read about Felicia Ferrone here, a Chicago based designer and was quite impressed with her work. I plan to visit Volume Gallery soon. Meanwhile, here are a few highlights from the gallery and the objects showcasing Ferrone's work.

For example, in Shift (pictured above), a void in the tabletop limits the accumulation of "life's detritus." The surface is minimized, inviting the user to play a more active role in their everyday use of furniture.
