The artist also creates Christmas ornaments and storage boxes. The storage boxes often have an eye catching geometric design. These works remind me of the boxes of the First Nations of Canada.

Kevin Irvin’s furniture is a great mixture of art and functionality. Another artist who did this is the great contemporary artist Pedro Friedeberg who creates tables and chairs that are incorporate the human hand.

Irvin’s work is a great example of contemporary furniture design. The basic rectangle shape, a shape that was often a large rectangle with basic wood or faux wood design, is now transformed into many boxes each with an interesting abstract pattern of shapes.
