The Turett Collaborative is 26 Years Old

788 1024 The Turett Collaborative

We incorporated in January 1992… just after we designed and started operating our first Newsbar on 19th Street. That labor of love led to more Newsbars, then more cafés, restaurants, and retail storefronts. Looking back, those early jewels were great opportunities to innovate with new materials, imaginative and intricate details, complex programs and amazing, hands-on clients. Over the years since we’ve been fortunate to apply the early lessons to projects of every type, and at dramatically larger scales.

This chair at Embajada Gallery in San Juan features Taino Weaving on a reproduction of a Henry Klumb ARKLU Studio chair. Henry Klumb is a German-born architect who lived and worked in San Juan, Puerto Rico from 1944 until his death in 1984. Klumb founded ARKLU, a design studio which produced furniture and utility objects from locally grown materials. Jorge González, an artist who produces these chairs today, currently has an exhibition at Embajada Gallery in Hato Rey, San Juan, Puerto Rico featuring the work of Taino weavers, combined with modernist elements from Klumb’s designs for ARKLU.
