Join us for an exclusive virtual chat with Cranbrook Academy of Art alumni Ayako Aratani (3D Design, ’16) and Evan Fay (3D Design, ’16), founders of Pontiac, Michigan based collaborative design studio Aratani・Fay.  Furniture designers Aratani and Fay state: “Our work embraces irregularity through craft, focusing on intuitive construction methods to create artful domestic objects.”  During this event for Art Associates, they will discuss their studio practice, showcasing current pieces and sharing ideas about new work still in process.
