Summary
This unique publication, filled with annotated images, presents an inventory of design, furniture, and textiles produced for Fogo Island Inn. Each piece is a collaborative effort between artisans and craftspeople living on the island and designers from various parts of the world who were invited to engage with the history and communities of Fogo Island and Change Islands in Newfoundland, Canada. Connecting to hospitality and its import on the island, the project attempts to preserve local heritage, foster the arts, and to stimulate an entrepreneurial culture of art and design as well as international dialogue. The furniture and textile pieces featured in the book, which are inventive and resourceful in their use of regional materials, respond to the unique environment of Fogo Island. Categorized under themes such as traditional, minimal, tactile, functional, pattern, and fancy, each function as both object and artifact. As a point of exchange and means toward self-sufficient community building, this project also serves as a model for resistance against the homogenization in design by focusing on a particular place and time that is expressed through form, color, and material.
