Frank De Jong is an artist and custom furniture maker with the Toronto-based woodworking collective â€˜The Other Fiveâ€™. His passion for craft was honed in Sheridan Collegeâ€™s craft and design program where he majored in furniture. He enjoys making functional objects which maintain a strong conceptual aspect, and is especially inspired by iconic furniture pieces, often referencing them in his work. Frank actively participates in various exhibitions and publications including his most recent inclusion in Lark Books â€˜500 Cabinets.â€™ Modern ideas are paired with unconventional and exploratory uses of materials to achieve Frankâ€™s signature aesthetic. A manipulator of many medias including wood, acrylic, metal and fibre, Frank is most enthused by the opportunity to reclaim pre-used materials and make what was once old, new again.
