Aswoon [1] is a collaborative arts and architectural installation company started by Susan Woods in 2003. Their works vary from several product lines for use as screens, paneling, furniture, and space dividers, to consultation and creation of custom projects. Their fabrication studio in the DUMBO neighborhood specializes in wood and metal construction, and has produced work for many well known retail clients. While their metal work is striking for its organic, yet clean lined look, it is the bent plywood [2] pieces which we can’t get enough of. They evoke gigantic versions of curled birch tree shavings, turning the scale of the personal interface on its head, as well as the perception of fragility.


We will definitely be looking for their work this weekend at BKLYN DESIGNS!
