Design & Prototyping
Not only do we create exclusive designs, but we also design the structure & frames, finishing, color choices...everything that goes into each piece. Every aspect of every piece has been designed from the ground-up to be unique, beautiful, and functional. Our design process starts by pulling together sources of inspiration from our international travels, experience, and research, then creating sketches and mockups to give life to ideas. Each piece communicates our core values and design principles. These include:
SCALE: A furniture design should fit the human form. Many designers miss the mark on this point, creating designs which, though beautiful, are uncomfortable to live in. We pride ourselves on understanding the human scale.
GRACE: One of the elements that takes furniture into the realm of sculpture. This is the difficult-to-define characteristic of an artist who is fluent in the visual language. Each surface on the piece should flow into the others with an effortless fluidity, causing a marriage of form and function.
FUNCTION: As important as Scale & Grace are, a piece of furniture must also function well. It must fit into your lifestyle, be able to take a beating, have a durable exterior surface, be able to sustain weight & use, and have a solid frame. We find immense pleasure in creating a marriage of form & function.
