This design by Matthew Lewis Hill is that needle. With a focus on Scandinavian design values of simple style and functionality, it transforms from comfy couch to supple sleeper in seconds. A built-in side table adds to its versatility, saving valuable space while enhancing its usability.

The Modern Space Age Stool

The Modern Space Age Stool

With it’s aerodynamic shape, winged seat and functional rivet accents, the C5 bar stool subtly reminds of aviation, but it also draws inspiration from the iconic Googie architecture of the 1950s. With its exaggerated geometries and spacey shapes, its a quirky addition to industrial-style interiors. Presented in a stark white and natural wood contrast, it’s also sophisticated enough to compliment kitchen islands or the household bar.

Sculptural Semitransparent Seating

Sculptural Semitransparent Seating

Camou is an everyday chair that focuses on variation for the body. Inspired by the posture in horseback riding, as well as textile constructions from architecture, the chair provides flexibility of movement to create a variety of sitting positions well beyond the norm! With its form the result of function, the result is an organic shape enhanced by a “transparent” 3D textile that creates interesting visual effects as the viewer changes perspective. It’s something totally different… DO WANT!

Doe, A Deer, A Freakin Awesome Chair

Inspired by the Cervidae (deer) family, specifically the geometries & smooth joints of its antlers & tall, strong stance, Elka is an exploration of organic transitional geometry & multi-axis CNC machining. Balancing the simplicity of structure & complexity of the curve, Elka finds beauty in the subtle details, soft transitions & sharp lines that create contrast within its overall form. Reinforced with steel pins, Elka exploits new tech in CNC machining to create seamless joints & expose stunning topographies within the grain.

Yesteryear's Furniture, Today

Yesteryear’s Furniture, Today

Modeled on an abandoned stretched Eames Fiberglass Shell Armchair at the Henry Ford Museum, the design imagines the lost prototype reborn using the most modern materials with the most traditional methods. It’s woven out of 12k carbon fiber with a modified weaving pattern that gives it substantial strength & single-digit lightness. In the spirit of Eames’ design philosophy, its transparency lays bare its own construction methodology with visual access to every part, giving it an aesthetic coherence that feels both uncanny & curiously natural.

Perplexing Puzzle Chair

Perplexing Puzzle Chair

Part of a larger collection of flat-pack furniture, the Lese Chair’s defining character is found in its clever construction. Composed of CNC milled beech plywood and polycarbonate, the only screws you’ll find are in the seat back and leg extensions. The rest of the structure is held together using 3D puzzle principles. So puzzling that you’ll be glad you have a place to sit and think about it!

Beneath the Cambium Layer

Beneath the Cambium Layer

This expertly crafted collection of furnishings takes inspiration from the way in which trees grow, celebrating the tree as both a material and living organism. The ever changing seasonal growth patterns and unique knots change the structure of the wood in subtle ways- this is reflected in the nuance details of each unique piece. The use of a coopering technique can be seen throughout the body of work as a construction method that directly mimics natural growth. The result is an aesthetic of craftsmanship and Danish Modern design paired with raw, organic shapes and textures.

Maybe it's magic...

Maybe it’s magic…

… or maybe it’s just clever design! It’s the Maybe Chair and it’s more chairs-in-one! A hybrid of die-cast aluminum technology with wood craftsmanship, the main structure is split into two aluminum die-cast parts which are efficient to store after production and easy to ship in a small box.

You decide!

Exactly what stressed passengers need to be happy campers!

Not quite a sofa, not quite a bench.

Not quite a sofa, not quite a bench.

The Woodstick Sofa isn’t what you’d normally think of a sofa… or a bench for that matter! It’s a hybrid of both! Made of solid wood, it’s similar to a bench. Its shape and comfortability, however, were inspired by the internal framework of the average cushioned sofa and thanks to its highly developed hard maple slats, it’s just as comfortable! They’re rigid enough to support a person, yet just elastic enough to conform and flex to their body.

I've never wanted to sit in a chair so badly...

I’ve never wanted to sit in a chair so badly…

Take a little bit of Eames and mix it with a handful of harlequin and you’ve got yourself a “Tiles” chair! This innovative design is the fruit of rethinking fabric furniture. Each section is hinged together by a strong fabric as part of its construction. The unique structure gives the chair slight flexibility, allowing it to form gently to the user’s back. Functional and beautiful! Look closer to see if you can spy a hidden Escher-style illusion —>
