Egg Collective Unveils a Collection Inspired by ‘Thing Power’
“Snake Eyes,” an exhibition that coincided with the New York studio’s 11th anniversary, showcased new furnishings from cofounders Stephanie Beamer, Crystal Ellis, and Hillary Petrie alongside works by myriad artists. Joining Casey McCafferty’s oiled walnut Cairn wall sculpture, for example, are Egg Collective’s Kerman cork coffee tables, sinuous powder-coated steel Robins armchair, and shapely Eden Leaf rug in cashmere, silk, and wool. The collection is inspired by “thing power,” a term coined by philosopher Jane Bennett to encapsulate the notion we live in an enchanted world occupied by lively matter that has a will of its own. “As a creator of objects, I couldn’t agree with her more,” Ellis says. “For the past three years, Hillary, Stephanie, and I have held back on releasing new work, instead focusing on growing our business by other means. We let our creative energies percolate and what resulted is a series of objects willing themselves into the world, each asking us to consider what power they could hold.”
