Liquidoranges STUDIO opened in 2008, founded by practicing architect, artist and designer Reese Schroeder. Inspired by respected colleagues, the studio began by developing interiors product concepts from Reese Schroeder's electronic artworks, studying how art could be interpreted as functional items while protecting its integrity as art. These concepts included hand woven rugs, fine china, metalcraft, light fixture designs, etc. The liquidoranges World Premiere international presentation of art rugs was in Dubai, UAE at the 2009 Domotex UAE show, where Reese Schroeder spoke at the Designer's Lounge. Working with manufacturers from around the world, product concepts were presented as prototypes in 2009 at the Boston Design Center where liquidoranges held its first Open House. At the studio Open House Reese displayed a large sheet of glass with an artwork applied as a film. The film was not successful as it was exposed to damage, and was ultimately not as optically clear as was hoped. A lot of excitement was generated by the idea of being able to create a permanent artwork in glass that could be incorporated into architecture and interiors. A partner with Reese in the glass business proposed laminating the artwork between glass, as an architectural safety glass. After much testing and some failures along the way, a successful series of test panels were produced and presented in November 2009 at Build Boston, the architectural trade show promoted by the Boston Society of Architects, and at NeoCon 2010 included in the Best of Show event.
By 2013 the Studio was busy with multiple projects around the US and internationally. The studio won five 2013 ADEX awards, four platinum and one silver, for laminated art glass products. Reese Schroeder's artwork also received recognition at the 2013 PAC national juried exhibition curated by the Rhode Island School of Design museum curator.
In 2016 Reese is invited to exhibit for the "Color" national juried exhibition at the PAC, juried by Dominic Molon, Richard Brown Baker Curator of Contemporary Art at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum. Out of 750 works submitted from around the USA, 65 were selected for the exhibition. Five Honorable Mentions, four Named Awards, and four Top Awards, Reese's work originally created for an art glass project entitled "082415 - Metabolic Transformations" received the "Antonio Cirino" Award.
Our work continues with major universities, international businesses, local business, individual private clients, and our own works because that's our passion.
