Launching: I'm happy to announce a new series of graphic turntable slip mats designed in collaboration with Symbol Audio, well-known for their handcrafted modern audio HIFI consoles and vinyl LP storage cabinets.

Each of the three high-quality felt record mats graphically interpret the audio brand’s modernist aesthetic through Chris’ unique point of view making a strong

visual statement: eye-catching on any turntable."

In search of a 'broad spectrum' agent; someone who can negotiate licensing and commissions across a spectrum of various media - art, photography, graphic design/illustration and furniture/product design. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in these fields, with a keen sense of aesthetics, knowledge of both established and up-and-coming, cutting-edge companies/clients, and have the professional experience in navigating these realms. Is this a pipe dream inquiry? Probably. But if you're out there I'd love to hear from you.

Hive Shelving Unit, Los Angeles Modern Auctions' May 19th, 2013 Modern Art & Design Auction

Chris Ferebee is one of America’s brightest young creative stars. ...Ferebee’s 1999 prototype Hollow Table, to my mind, embodies all the hallmarks of great contemporary design. It was made in small numbers (in this case, one of an edition of one); it is made of beautiful materials–figured wood, hand rubbed lacquer, and aircraft quality aluminum; and has a striking yet timeless form that makes subtle references to the mid-century era of design. I think Ferebee has a very promising future, and this table will stand as a signal design object in the arc of his career.
