“While the world fills up with so much stuff we love to hate, CITIZEN:Citizen provokes with a collection we hate to love. It’s not easy or pretty. It’s not comfy or cool. Its not in good taste or in with the latest trend. These merry pranksters demand that we scratch the surface and work a little harder—to follow them beyond the petty discourse and malaise of our consumer culture into a realm where craft replaces crap, fun is function, and ideas trump ideals. Ultimately CITIZEN:Citizen’s designers create exquisite objects, but they are also unfinished and open-ended, their completion left to each of us. They demand that we all be citizens.”
