American designer Todd Bracher will have his first South American exhibition in Sao Paulo this August. The Museu da Casa Brasileira, with its neo-classic architecture, will be the ideal place to contrast with the minimalistic and strategic thinking of the American design star. Between August 23 and October 21, 2012, the exhibit “Todd Bracher – the essence of things” will present pieces such as furniture, kitchen appliances, lamps and objects, as well as photographs and videos referring to the his creative process.
“I don’t want to be recognized, remembered or classified as a designer – and neither as an artist. I don’t like titles, I don’t like being stereotyped as a North American, a foreigner, I don’t want to be anything. I just want to be an individual and this exhibition is all about that. It’s a personal point of view interpreting the world through art, design, drawing. This is what is defined by art and design,” says Bracher.
His furniture and objects are produced by companies such as Zanotta, Fritz Hansen and Cappellini. His creations have won him many awards and was recently named the Best New Designer at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.
Shaw Contract Group collaborated with Todd Bracher in 2011 on our collection, The Music Project. He worked with our designers and a team of software engineers to capture and visually interpret musical sounds then integrate them into the carpet design.
