Outermost is an online gallery that pulls together a mix of objects reflecting the colors and textures, feel and spirit of the Outer Cape. Here we seek the nature-inspired and the hand-worked – we value the time-tested and the weather-worn. Here we embody that unique intersection of historic and modernist sensibilities. Inspired by this, we gather makers that deeply work their mediums, show the complexities of process, and reach bold, calming, modern shapes. We are located on Outer Cape Cod.
Chris Nagle's interest in design — from art and architecture to products and furniture — is attributed to his father, an art teacher, painter, sculptor and skilled carpenter. Chris grew up in a space that was forever changing, where watching (and helping) his father was a way of life. He developed a particular love for architecture — a fascination with how it both integrates and frames nature, how it functions as both shelter and sanctuary, with efficiency and spirit. This deep interest led him to a career of design/build projects, and he continues his design work alongside Outermost. Chris shares an equally deep love of the ocean and its edge — the light, colors, textures and energy — and has chosen the Outer Cape as home for 20 years. He considers it truly inspiring to be part of a community that shares this fascination, and an honor to reflect it through the lens of Outermost.
