Experimentation with new materials has always been at the core of renowned Chicago interior designer Susan Fredman’s work. Susan is the award-winning CEO of Susan Fredman Design Group and founder of Designs for Dignity, a non-profit collective dedicated to transforming environments and the lives of those who inhabit them. An innovative and creative leader, Susan is pushing the design envelope with her newest venture, container homes. Made from recycled shipping containers, these ecologically sound structures are shifting traditional thinking about the concept of home. Susan spoke with TMG about working with this unlikely component and thinking outside, and inside, the box.
