Open Studio: Suzanne Tick
Suzanne Tick is the founder of Suzanne Tick Inc., specializing in materials brand strategy, product design, development, and direction for commercial interiors. Suzanne is currently partnering with Tarkett on Brand Strategy and Product Development, Creative Director for LUUM textiles, and Design Consultant for Tandus Centiva.
Tick Studio operates out of a townhouse in the East Village, where Suzanne works and lives. The building was the site of the Reuben Gallery in the late fifties and early sixties, where Anita Reuben invented art Happenings and where artists such as Jim Dine, Allan Kaprow, Robert Whitman, Claes Oldenburg, Red Grooms, and many more exhibited their work. This rich tradition of creativity and exploration carries on into the present day, where the newly renovated Tick Studio develops a range of products including glass, floorcovering, upholstery, drapery, and wallcovering. Suzanne also maintains a fine art hand weaving practice and creates woven sculptures from repurposed materials that are collected and exhibited worldwide.
