Detroit-based furniture designer Christopher Schanck is interested in materials and design processes that are not traditionally associated with luxury, mass-production, or standards of perfection. Among his best-known works are those that comprise his ‘ALUfoil’ series, in which industrial and discarded materials are covered in aluminum foil, and then sealed with resin. His methods characteristically involve both outsider techniques as well as the help in his studio of marginalized members of the Detroit community.
