Context was founded by husband wife team Bryce and Kerry Moore. Their experimentation and exploration sparked the essence of Context furniture. Bryce's background in craft and Kerry's in graphics merged during the design process; the result is the unconventional use of materials and a group both exquisitely crafted and dramatically enhanced with graphic accents. Each design begins as an outline; a profile intended to communicate the essence the object, an ideal graphic icon of “chair” or “stool”. A hardwood stripe is incorporated in every piece, reinforcing the marriage of craft with graphic, industrial with natural, mass production with hand craftsmanship. Integrity of workmanship and planning drives each stage of development and construction of Context Furniture. Each piece of furniture provides an open window onto this process by exposing each layer of development in the final work.
