Jeannine Wang holds a BFA in Architecture from Copper Union as well as an MFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is originally from New York but now resides and works in Philadelphia. “I believe that good furniture creates good positive behavior, and this involves more than a relationship held at a distance. It’s not just pictures we can see online, or what we read about, or what we are told. Furniture is a direct interface with the world. And how we choose to furnish our lives is an empowering, beautiful way that every person gets to paint their own values on the environment. Making it lets me spend time reevaluating the types of furniture we have in our homes, why they look and act the way they do, and what kinds of tools and skills I have to respond with. My work exalts freedom, familiarity, and unrestricted comfort in the environment.”
