FURNITURE OF THE FOGO ISLAND INN. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 144 pp. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791543 In English.
Publisher's description: Located between Joe Batt's Arm and Barr'd Islands on the Back Western Shore of Fogo Island, Newfoundland, the Fogo Island Inn is a spectacular building set in a spectacular landscape, and the site of a collaborative design effort between local artisans and international designers. In annotated full-bleed color images, their designs, furniture and textiles evince the inventive and resourceful use of regional materials, forms and colors responsive to and reflective of this unique environment. Categorized as traditional, minimal, tactile, functional, pattern and fancy, each piece functions as both object and artifact. The project, supported by the Shorefast Foundation and described in introductory text by editor Joseph Kellner, is part of a greater effort to rebuild the economy of care, craft and culture that existed on these islands for hundreds of years. It also serves as inspiration and model for resistance to cultural homogenization and rural decline.
