Karen Ryan

Karen Ryan exhibited her "Custom Made" chair collection at this year's 100% Design in London and was an instant hit with her wonderfully strange creations. Using pieces of unwanted furniture, Karen blends together different styles, colors and materials to create beautiful new chairs that are each a unique piece of art.

She also showed her "Second Hand" plate collection, which reminds me of Sarah Cihat, but with a twist. After rescuing the plates from thrift stores, Karen removes part of the pattern, leaving behind traces of the original image as well as an emotive message. (Via Inhabit)
