Our Design Process


We are craftsmen. Craftsmanship is our language; its vocabulary is care and thought and skill with our hands. It says a chair begins with a tree, a tree in a forest. It is up to us to envision this chair and make it come to life. Craftsmanship works hand in hand with design so the chair has grace, is comfortable, and is pleasing to the eye. It says that if the whole is to exceed the sum of its parts, each part must be considered completely and room must be left for spirit to settle in.

Craftsmanship is looking for, and finding, ways to cut the wood, shape it, and join it properly so it will endure. It asks, what is the very best way to do this?
