F2 Lab -- Get Blown

F2 Lab -- started by couple Peter and Marilyn Frank -- is really making a name for itself in the art world.

The Franks started blowing glass a number of years ago in New York, where Marilyn also owned a graphic design joint. Following a series of life transitions, the couple settled in Chicago and opened up their Lab in the new art center of the West Loop in 2005.

Earlier this year, Design Within Reach held a contest and when the store realized F2 didn't fit in any category, they created a new one because the pieces -- etched beakers they dubbed the "Chemistry Set" -- were that unique.

They are known for their vessels and lighting pieces that are done in a minimalist style. In Chicago, their pieces are available at the Museum of Contemporary Art's store, my fave new home furnishings store I.D. and at their Lab.

I.D. is holding a trunk show on May 12 to showcase F2's goods, including the "Water Droplet," solid, clear-glass dishes featuring a droplet of metallic silver in the center. They'll be on display through May 23.
