We like to give you something to do as well as some ideas of what to buy, and the new exhibition Figuring Space: Sculpture/Furniture from Mies to Moore, at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds is one to go and see.

It opened last week and runs until the 1st of April, and explores the relationship between sculpture and furniture, and how they both work to shape the environment they inhabit.

Work by Mies van der Rohe including his famous Barcelona Chair will be exhibited alongside Henry Moore sculptures. The exhibition also includes signature pieces of furniture by Charles and Ray Eames and Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Chair which were designed to be looked at as well as sat on, therefore blurring the line between sculpture and furniture.

If you can’t get to the exhibition the site has lots of installation views which are worth a look.
