If you’ve ever dreamt of retrofitting your tiny apartment with an all-in-one space-saving life-changing furniture solution, you have a friend in Andrea Zittel. Currently based in Joshua Tree, CA, Zittel is an artist who has been blurring the line between fine art and design for over a decade.
Well before prefab and customization became the hot topic of today’s design circles, Zittel was creating compact living structures and all-in-one home furnishings that combine modular parts and mixed used components. Her work investigates notions of individualism, urbanity, and the home, while also bearing an obvious and compelling resonance with many contemporary design trends. It’s no surprise, then, that she has received increased critical acclaim recently.
