We love our Nest rocking chair concept, so we wanted to make it available at a lower cost. The 2.0 is not only more comfortable and durable, it takes half the time to fabricate. All of which we like.
These speaker cabinets were designed by Elijah for a school project. Inspired by the aesthetic of Dieter Rams, they consist of simple relationships of shape and proportion, and they highlight the natural beauty and function of their materials.
This bench is part of a set of four benches and a dining table. It was a fun project to create, involving minimal planning as each thin steel rod was cut and welded on free-form until these strong, crystal like structures were formed.
Spring 2015 came upon us and we realized it had been a while since we saw someone break the mold with a grill design. So we gave it a try, sculpting this one out of thick sheet metal, and giving it a couple hairpin legs. It's small enough to take on the road too.
We love working with raw plywood. This table is made by cutting and stacking 1.5" thick flake board, creating continuous surfaces of chips and strata. Hairpin legs give the chunky top an ironic sense of lightness.
This chair was created to benefit the impovershed people of the Favelas in Brazil. These urban slums often trap people in a cycle of poverty and crime, and we thought maybe we could help by designing a chair that was great quality, but inexpensive enough to make that we can afford to donate toward social work in Brazil.
We made this end table in collaboration with our friends at Lacoursiere cabinetry. They had a gorgeous round cherry top, and we had some extra steel laying around.
This piece features a live edge quilted, figured, and spalted Elm board we got to make legs for. We bent the legs from one piece of steel because that seemed like the right thing to do.
This table was crafted from salvaged plywood and Bubinga wood veneer. The steel legs have storage too, which is cool.
Part sculpture, part utility. We bent this design out of a piece of extra steel one day because some books just look too pretty not to keep out.
Inspired by Minnesotan lake culture, this loveseat was made to sit in, lie on, and just all-around get comfortable with.
Our first ever rocking chair, and an all time favorite. This chair was designed to capture you in a nest of hand woven cotton rope, strung tightly between a steel framework which alludes to mid century automotive design. Fast, but cozy.
Designed for an exhibition at the 2015 Minnesota State Fair, this chair was inspired by historic modern architect Carl Graffunder. We mimicked his favorite wood tone, color sensibilities, and shapes... Then made it into a napping tool.
Designed for cashmere clothing company Kit & Ace, these dining chairs highlight the dynamic structure of steel trusses, much like the railroad bridges we enjoy exploring on the Mississippi. the chair bases are finished in bright copper, and the seats are white washed ash.
