NEU Design CO was founded in 2013 by Elijah Neumann. Our passion at NEU is intelligent, conscious design which fulfills practical needs and elevates daily life. We love the organic modern movement of the 50’s and 60’s, a framework for design which was born and perfected in the midwest and which balances our love for innovation and technology with the beauty of the natural world.
Before launching his own company, Elijah spent years developing a gift for problem solving and design as an electromechanical engineer, designing, fabricating, and automating machinery for a St. Paul factory. During this time he also studied sculpture, ergonomics, and design history and graduated UNW with a degree in industrial design. Although much of his career has been spent on the technical end of design, Elijah's true passion is aesthetics. He finds the most satisfaction in perfecting the details of a project - getting the proportions just right, picking the perfect material/texture combinations, and putting the extra level of polish on every object that leaves his Twin Cities studio. He believes his role as a designer it to think simultaneously as artist and engineer.
We are based in St. Paul Minnesota, and offer the Twin Cities a full range of design consultation, welding and metal fabrication, custom and bespoke furniture and architectural steel. We work with trusted local companies and artisans to source powder coating, laser cutting, electroplating, woodworking, acrylic manufacturing, poured concrete, and many other specialized services to ensure each design project we work on is the best it can possibly be, and is always made responsibly in the USA.
We have managed projects as small as a single coffee table and as large as outfitting entire offices and breweries with modern, bespoke furniture and built-ins. We love working in close collaboration with interior designers, architects, and general contractors. If you don't have a design professional on the job yet, and you like our style, let us know that you need some advice. We'll whip out the sketch book and help you dream up something totally unique and perfect for your needs!
Thank you for visiting NEU Design CO - enjoy!
