ShowPDX: Innovative + Functional Furniture Design is a not-for-profit biennial exhibit presented by fix studio. ShowPDX 2020 will display over 60 examples of unusual and stimulating furniture design while providing designers/fabricators/makers with a place and resource for peer and public recognition, support and dialogue.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC during the month of OCTOBER 2020, events include DESIGNER Q&A, TOURS, and MEET YOUR MAKER and other networking gatherings. Over 2,500 people are expected to attend.
In 2001, small group exhibits by local designers and fabricators inspired the birth of a regular venue for furniture design in Portland. Created by designers Jennifer Jako and Christopher Bleiler of fix studio, Show2002 was the first of its kind in Portland. The exhibit was a curated show of furniture design, featuring local designers, fabricators, and makers. Through the spirit and support of the ShowPDX curatorial group, ShowPDX 2020 continues to fuel collaboration, inspire students, create dialog amongst colleagues, promote business and inspire events by other independent designers and regional designers at locations across the country.
