NEU Design CO was founded in 2013 by Elijah Neumann together with his wife April. 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 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 artists to source powder coating, laser cutting, electroplating, woodworking, 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.
Several Twin Cities stores carry select items from our catalogue of mid-century-modern furniture, including Covet Design, Omforme, True Ethic, and Forage Modern Workshop. These pieces are on the floor, ready to find a new home. If you are looking for something more specific, please contact us with your idea and we'll get back to you quickly.
Thank you for visiting NEU Design CO - enjoy!
