Soft + Steady

The professional design environment can be conflicting to personal values of long lasting slow design. Designing and crafting pieces out of natural / found materials, (mostly wood) has been my outlet of positive disruption to the mass manufacturing machine and also therapeutic fun. This is an ongoing endeavour, here are some examples of completed projects done for joy.

* handmade in NYC, 100% personal schlep included

Balance board for when waves are not around to practice surfing on land. The board is also good for general balance work.

Coffee table + storage made from found plywood off 7th Ave. + 17th St. The client’s only request was for me to use the existing material, displaying the graphics. Taking account their lifestyle and small NYC apt, I created this functional piece.
