The fine artists at METAL has been hammering away in their foundries since fall on a new and unique project soon to be unveiled. METAL’s first line of furniture. These floating structures, wrought from 5/8 inch steel, will come in three sizes. The furniture looks great—minimalistic assemblages of almost-organic textures and crisp lines. The pieces can be put to various uses, as benches, stools or display tables—they kowtow to a person’s creativity the same way hot steel is bent to METAL’s will. The furnishing will be unveiled at “Machinamentum,” a celebration of METAL's first two years of existence. Ann Arbor graphic designer and artist Mark Benglian will display his mixed media work during the event, which will be catered by Chef Norman of Detroit. Free. Saturday, April 13. METAL, 220 Felch St. (800) 613-6385. www.metaloffmain.com—JS
