Commissioned by Roman and Williams for the Freehand Chicago hotel, New Factories designed and produced over 100 banners, providing income to artists and an opportunity to experiment with ideas around mass production, customization, and on-demand manufacturing. New Factories developed a series of geometric designs inspired by the Bauhaus and a workshop to produce the banners— all sewn by hand and each one unique. Prototypes were exhibited at Perimeter Gallery in Belfast, Maine. As each banner was completed for the full production order, It was delivered to SPACE Gallery in Portland, Maine for the exhibition titled STANDARD in the fall of 2014. The banner series can now be seen by guests of the Freehand Chicago hotel.
