Justin Bailey Design

Justin Bailey is a furniture and lighting designer based in Bloomington, Indiana where he is a professor at Indiana University’s School of Art, Architecture and Design, having recently graduated with an MFA in 3D Design from the University of Iowa in 2016. With a background in both sculpture and design, Justin embraces both worlds to create design that takes an experimental approach to form and structure within functional objects. 

Justin Bailey’s designs emphasize movement and fluidity in furniture and objects. Building with lines and surfaces, Justin creates forms that appear lightweight, minimal, and at times, ethereal. Works featured at the SaloneSatellite 2018 explore the uses and manipulation of Corian Solid Surface as a medium for expressing form and function.

Featured Works

Iso Table

A coffee table inspired by isometric drawing. 

Made up of bent steel rod and modular Corian solid surface tiles, the table is as much a three-dimensional drawing stemming from the Alexander Calder tradition of wire drawing as it is a modern functional piece of furniture. Beginning with a grid system and Justin Bailey found leverage in the angles that pull the table in 15 degree tilts in two directions, giving the Iso Table it’s signature italic movement. The heavy black lines that create the volume of the table are reminiscent of bold ink lines used in drafting and the gridded system of the top likened to an architectural plan (with coasters instead of closets). 

The Iso Table received a MetropolisLikes award from Metropolis Magazine during NYCxDesign 2017 where it was featured in Wanted Design's Launchpad and was also featured in IDS Toronto's Prototype 2018.

Murmur Stools

The Murmur Stools are a gestural study of seating surfaces. Ergonomic and Organic, the seat is a thermoformed sheet of Glacier White Corian Solid Surface, resting upon a minimal cast aluminum base to appear as if floating above the ground. The aluminum bases were 3D Printed in a castable resin and were lost-wax casted. One style of base features removable legs while the other maintains the singular cast form aluminum form.

The Murmur stool was featured in the 2018 Salone Award section of SaloneSatellite.
