Irish Eyes Asmiling

Corkman Joseph Walsh may think his recent installation, In Aer, was his lucky charm. Nearly 10 years after its founding, Walsh's namesake studio made its U.S. debut in 2007's SOFA Chicago, the first submission by an Irish designer. So well received, his unique wooden furniture is now making its New York premiere in "Realisations" at the American Irish Historical Society, October 17 to November 2.
Alongside video, photographic, and graphic representation of In Aer will be pieces from Walsh's organic Figure and Form collection, including the sinuous Suaimhneas rocking chair, and his new Prism collection of geometric tables and consoles. Want more? Walsh has been invited back to SOFA Chicago, taking place in November.
