Rangeley Morton explores mobile design through the creation of flat-pack furniture for modern living. Furnishings are designed with a focus on collapsable ingenuity and the study of infrastructural systems. Work is fabricated in three dimensions through a combination of traditional handcraft and digital production. His furniture evokes a playful curiosity that is both functional and whimsical.
While growing up, Rangeley was fascinated with assembling, modifying and disassembling. His desire to make furniture was born out of this inherent impulse to play. Rangeley graduated with a BFA in woodworking and furniture design from Maine College of Art. He went on to be junior artist in residence at San Diego State University in the graduate program. A 2014 Windgate Fellowship recipient, Rangeley is creating a benchtop prototyping studio made up of transportable tools to continue his work.
Rangeley has interned and worked with Matt Hutton at Studio 24b in Portland, Maine. Rangeley has also studied at Penland School of Crafts, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. His work has been featured in multiple juried national exhibitions in addition to being awarded institutional scholarships in the 2012, 2013, 2014.
