MAKE ROOM : LOCZIdesign Takes on 1960s with American Craft Council

American Craft Council's 75th Anniversary took place July 30, 2017 and they celebrated by inviting local designers to represent design over the decades. The LOCZIdesign group was 1 of 4 local designers invited by the ACC to create installations focused on 4 specific decades. The Ld group was inspired to represent the 1960s. 

"The '60s have always held allure," says LOCZIdesign Creative Director Paige Loczi. "There is a balance of essential line and function, yet a nod to surrealism with high-chroma color and references to an adventurist spirit. The 1960s were a bridge with one foot in the nostalgic past and one foot into the psychedelic future."

Lead designers, Mike Ufferman and Catrina Cooper used a blend of locally sourced furnishings including a sustainable felt rug from Peace Industry, ceramic wall art from James Aarons, lamp from Kinzig Design, wood art “fire” sculpture from Koji Tanaka and a Kevin Costello/Slice Furniture end table for a distinctly "Madmen meets art executive" vibe. The room, meant to be the home office of said executive, also included a nod to a certain car designer who came of age in the 1960s.
