Just love when you find modern design in unexpected spaces — like places of worship — because it just proves modern design’s lasting power, but also its broad, accessible appeal. The proof is in the pudding in Michael Yates Design’s four pieces for Trinity Episcopal School’s new chapel, in Austin, Texas.
In Yates’ words, these leggy, woodsy pieces were decided to imply loftiness, and the angles and directions of the structural supports definitely give that impression. Constructed of maple and cherry woods, it’s refreshing to see such earthy, natural designs in a place of worship. See more of the design on the Michael Yates Design website or on the Michael Yates Design Facebook page.
What do you think about these modern pieces? Too modern for a chapel or just right?
