Gabriel Tan Studio will be exhibiting new designs inspired by traditional Shaker objects as part of the Furnishing Utopia exhibition.
10 design studios were invited by Oregon-based Studio Gorm to collaborate with the Hancock Shaker Village and the Mt. Lebanon Shaker Museum to realize this project.
Gabriel Tan Studio is a design practice working across the borders of craft, culture and technology. Exploring new ways to interpret luxury and break archetypes, the studio works on design, curation and creative direction for an international client base of hotels, restaurants, retail brands and manufacturers.
The works of Gabriel Tan have been exhibited in Milan, New York, Stockholm, London, Paris, Tokyo, Barcelona, Singapore and his recognition includes the Industrial Designers Society of America's IDEA Award, Electrolux Design Lab Award and the Bombay Sapphire Asia Grand Prix. Aside from his design work, he has taught as a visiting lecturer at Lasalle College of the Arts, the University of Oregon and also served as a jury member at the Cannes Lions Festival.
Gabriel is also a co-founder of the international design collective Outofstock since 2007, whose clients include Ligne Roset, Biobu, Industry Plus and Blå Station.
