About Jack Craig
Jack Craig is a designer represented by Salon 94 in New York City. His tables, chairs, and lighting have shown in Design Miami, Collective Design Fair, the Saint-Etienne Design Biennale, and most recently at Wasserman Projects. Currently teaching at College for Creative Studies, Craig has also taught at School of Art Institute Chicago and University of Michigan. Once an engineer working in stealth technology for the US Navy, Craig holds degrees in electrical engineering and design: MFA, Cranbrook Academy of Art ‘12; BFA, University of Illinois ‘10; MS and BS, University of Maryland ‘01 and ‘03.
Craig’s studio practice operates through intentional staging of unconventional materials to force improvised situations and impromptu structure. He engages elements of the surrounding environment through a gauntlet of material abuses. Each is a measure of its possibilities – a way of parsing foreign physicalities into ordered function and purpose. Through dozens of studies, these made up technologies are advanced.
