Melissa Borrell Design
Creative Director and Founder
Challenging expectations about how we perceive and interact with the world around us is my ongoing artistic goal. I like to create objects and artwork that play with the way people see things by making designs that inspire new perspectives. Blurring the lines between art and design, my work explores concepts of space, perception, color and form through jewelry, innovative product designs, and sculpture. Challenging the definitions that divide these categories, I create work that is at the same time functional and conceptual. Light bulbs that cast shadows, jewelry that hangs as art on the wall, window shades that give the illusion of another world outside, and pendants that transform from 2D to 3D are a few examples of the ways I play with your assumptions. I am intrigued by different materials and perspectives, and thrive on the challenge of developing new ideas.
