Chris Palmer creates a body of work that speaks to the rich history of the city in which he lives and works. The memory of Detroit’s industrial glory echoes its hum in Palmer’s Loft Series, both through its reclaimed materials and its Industrial Age style of manufacturing. Its rugged and hand-crafted styling pays homage to a past period whose values remain relevant in today’s search for a new future.

From Chris Palmer: The Loft Series is manufactured similar to turn of the century vehicles, carriages and other objects of that time. Combinations of wood, steel and solid rivets are not only reliably strong but offer a one-hundred-year-old industrial aesthetic. As a further exploration a third, more domestic material was added; seagrass has a pleasant aroma, interesting visual qualities and is reliably strong. This series is photographed at the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit, Michigan, the building where the Ford Model T was made from 1904- 1910.

Thanks to Chris for his submission to designgush.
