Meet the Young Designer Making Very Interesting Furniture
Dozie Kanu is waiting for his bench to arrive. “I think this piece is gonna mesh really well,” he says, surveying the bright, second-floor gallery space it will soon occupy. “I’m just imagining the chrome glistening.” The bench is on its way to the Lever House in New York, where it will be installed as part of “Midtown,” a generation-bridging group show that places the work of legendary practitioners like Isamu Noguchi and Gaetano Pesce alongside nascent talents like Kanu. Open through this week, the show is a partnership between Salon 94 and Maccarone gallery.
