AL HAMAD DESIGN, Brooklyn NY
Furniture and Gallery Design • Internship 2016
Al Hamad Design focuses on playing with the notion of what is practical design. • Can impracticality spark conversation, and if so, how can that be used for change?
Work in Progress
Worked on the logistics and planning of the "Work in Progress" exhibition at the Store Front for Art and Architecture. "Work in Progress" showcased artists, designers, and architects' alternative visions of ongoing construction sites throughout New York City by displaying personalized renderings that one would see aside a construction site. This exhibition was done in the vein of critiquing current development practices in New York City.

George Berges Gallery Summer Launch
Worked on the revamping of the lower level of the Georges Berges Gallery for the 2016 Summer launch. The redesigned space would allow for artists, collectors, and the public to co-mingle and experience art and design in a lounge-like atmosphere.
Both objects are part of a dark humored speculative series that speaks to aspects of fragile humanity (addiction and greed). Sterile Money plays with the notion of dirty money and how cleanliness could be a commodity with currency while the Intravenous Wine Dispenser puts a dark twist on alcohol addiction and its dependency.
