Ethan Cook

Ethan Cook is an American designer, born in a small town in Texas. In 2008 he moved to New York to live and work as a contemporary artist and designer. Cook is known for his abstract, geometric ‘paintings’ from sewn-together pieces of canvas. He weaves them from old colored cotton and a four-harness flower loom, so his work does not contain any paint. For Cook, the performance of art making is meditative as well as intensely rhythmic. His minimalistic work has been recognized and exhibited since 2009, with solo exhibitions since 2014. For HAY, Cook designed the Flat Works collection.
