This event has ended.

Dear Human originated from the mutual desire to create joy through unexpected moments in everyday environments, exploring new materials and forms, drifting from fine art into design concepts and back. Their latest collection is inspired by their continued interest in folk art and in particular, the ethnic textiles of former Yugoslavia, Sokolovic’s homeland. It quietly tells a story of these distant regions and their recent history through patterns and symbols.

LMAKbooks+design is excited to premier the newest collection of furniture, light forms and other objects by the Canadian designers’ collective Dear Human (Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell), which opens on Wednesday September 4 and will be on view until November 3, 2019.
The designer’s collective, known for their dedication to use material wisely and inventively, composed the work from post-consumer paper they collected from businesses in Montreal, Canada where their studio is located. After being reduced to fibers, the paper is reformed into new and unrecognizable states of being as furniture, light forms and art.

Dear Human is the husband and wife collective, Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell, who met at an artist residency in Denmark in 2008. While working on their individual fine art practices, Noel and Jasna began experimenting together on collaborative urban-interventions, public art, and design-oriented projects. As their collaborative work gained momentum, it quickly became their primary focus and Dear Human was born.
