Event Details

re.dwell is a full-service design and fabrication shop that specializes in using reclaimed materials in custom furniture pieces and the design and installation of unique spaces for residential and commercial spaces.

Owner, Dan Chase, attended Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning, in Muncie, Indiana, where he studied sustainable design, alternative building methods, and received a master’s degree in architecture. During his time in school and working with a friend deconstructing old homes he fell in love with the immense potential hidden beneath the decay of the old dilapidated structures they were taking down. While tinkering with and trying to find new uses for these materials Dan discovered a passion for furniture making. With this passion for design and working with these old and forgotten materials re.dwell was born as a way to show the beauty that was hiding just beneath the surface.

Critical discourse on design.
