New Furniture

The recent exhibition at the design gallery Chambers, in New York presents a collection of furniture, curated by Matylda Krzykowski as an homage to  Richard Hamilton`s work from 1956, titled „Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?“ At that time the work was a commentary on the dawn of the consumer age and its effect on daily life. „In his artwork, Hamilton commented on rapid and fundamental changes in everyday existence and how people became drawn into a consumerist lifestyle,“ Krzykowski said to dezeen. „Looking at ‚Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?‘ and comparing it with the domestic objects and furniture produced today, one realises that not a lot has changed over the past 60 years.“
