Furniture - Everything is an opportunity.

When it comes to a custom, one-of-a-kind piece of furniture every step, every element, demands a decision: what are the functions, materials, needs and use? What are the wants, peculiarities, the details and textures? From the initial brainstorming, through the development and finalizing of ideas and drawings, to the execution and finishing, every step is attended to with equal attention. And from this arises a functional, fitting, well-crafted original piece of furniture.

Art installation - A considered response.

From a booth at the The European Fine Art Fair to the arrangement of antique mirrors in an interior designer’s studio, from a tribal art collector’s Portland apartment to a contemporary collection in a wine country estate, from an intimate arrangement of family photos to that new painting in your home, all objects and their environments deserve a considered response to their intrinsic value and meaning. And never underestimate the value of a picture hung right.
