On Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m., “Furnished,” an exhibition of furniture and objects designed by Syracuse Architecture faculty, will open with a reception to be held in Slocum Hall Gallery. The exhibition will continue through Oct. 11. It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

furnished“Everyday objects have the capacity to affect our behavior, interactions and the fundamental ways in which we inhabit a place,” says assistant professor and co-curator Vasilena Vassilev. “Through form, material and detail connections, the small-scale design territories of furniture and product design give us the opportunity to furnish our needs and the spaces we live in, while transforming the atmosphere of a space. ‘Furnished’ exhibits a collection of furniture and objects which illustrates these design potentials and material environments.”

Syracuse Architecture faculty exhibitors, in addition to Vassilev, are:

  • Ramona Albert, assistant professor
  • Sarosh Anklesaria and Lior Galili, assistant professors
  • Larry Bowne, associate professor
  • Sekou Cooke, assistant professor
  • Jonathan Lott, assistant professor
  • Ryan Ludwig, assistant professor
  • P. Michael Pelken, associate professor and Architecture Fellow in Sustainable Technologies
  • Brett Snyder, assistant professor
  • Timothy Stenson, associate professor and undergraduate chair
  • Robert Svetz, assistant professor
