Welcome to Guerilla by Design

What would happen if 15 furniture designers invaded your home and replaced all your belongings with furniture designed specifically for your space?

Guerilla By Design is an ambush style furniture exhibition trying to answer that question. An urban residential space will be re-imagined and re-furnished with furniture from Minneapolis designers.

The Guerilla Designers’ goal is to highlight the rich design culture present in Minneapolis/St. Paul, and prove great design doesn’t just happen in London, New York, and Milan. Guerilla Designers’ mission: Take furniture design out of the gallery and put it into the context of a living space making it less intimidating, and accessible to everyone.

The Guerilla Designers:
     -Live in Minneapolis / St. Paul
     -Love Furniture
     -Believe high design is for everyone

Our first show will be in August 2012. Stay tuned for blog posts from each of the designers involved as well as process photos, commentary and critique.
