Claire is a furniture designer based in Winnipeg. She went to the University of Manitoba and received her Bachelor in Environmental design (interior design). After graduating she attended the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Norway to pursue a masters in design focused on interior design and furniture design.
This design converts the second floor of 164 Langside into a studio and workshop for Claire to meet with clients, design, and produce her furniture.
The layout is designed to be a multi-functional and flexible space. With exposed ceilings revealing the wood beams above and a sculptural metal feature wall, the space evokes thoughts of the pieces that Claire is producing. The colours are from a grey palette to not distract from the work being displayed and pops of colour are a nod to nature.
