A small yet comfortable stool made with simple contoured two-dimensional shapes, slowly translated over space to create a smooth, rounded volume. A first iteration in this style, and yet a simple, elegant design.

Cubefields use alternative construction methodologies that force the viewer to call into question the physicality of the art object. Cubefield XRYG, and Cubefield XRYGZB are two system of rectangular prisms that have been generated using Rhino 5 with Grasshopper (a parametric modeling plugin for a 3d modeling software). Each set of prisms has their dimensions determined by their distance from an origin point (for instance, the farther away a prism is from the origin in the x direction, the longer the length of that prism in the x direction, etc). Color is then assigned to the fields in a similar manner, each prism’s x distance from the origin determines its Red color value, and its y distance determines, its Green color value. Keep in mind, in RGB color fields, yellow is the secondary color created from green and red. The two are all but identical, but the addition of blue into the equation for the second piece entirely changes the the visual field of color. In regards the the physicality of the object, both cubefields are made of woven paper. Rather than constructing a hundred individual prisms, by weaving two sheets of printed paper, the field transforms from a hundred individual plot points on a graph to a curve along a spectrum. The viewer sees the gradient of color translated over the shape and form of the prisms and the connection is deepened by the interconnectedness of the paper itself.
SINK was a devised theater piece created at Brown's Production Workshop, a student run theater space, in the Fall of 2013. The space called for movable, multipurpose furniture with qualities reminiscent of hard relationships, as well as the sea. The ramp and the three benches were constructed in two weeks time to meet the directors request.
The Bad Gallery is a virtual platform for the public curation of bad art. Artworks are uploaded to the site anonymously by visitors and accessioned into a collection of artistic refuse. These works are then paired randomly, with visitors to the site voting for the artwork that they consider to be worse. Finally, the works voted to the bottom are compiled into a list of the worst artwork, persuable by the public.

Exploring a conversion from 2D forms to 3D volumes, Axi-Radial Desk is designed as a lobby desk with interesting nooks and crannies used for storage space. From planar wood placed in a polar array, comes a unique, smoothly curved desk.

Frank Gehry’s furniture was an off shoot of his architectural career. In 1969 he started a project called Easy Edges, which set out to create low-cost, easily produced furniture. He found that cardboard was a material that was surprisingly strong when oriented correctly, and it was also very cheap.
Le Creuset - a high end kitchenware company - is know for their colorfully enamelled cast-iron and ceramic dishware. Working from traditional forwards, I modelled three pieces of cookware which could be added to their collection.
In brief, It's been 65 years since George Nelson designed his iconic Slat Bench. Ben Snell and I decided to design its younger cousin.
In 1946, Slat bench was clean, honest, and versatile, which in the modern era, was all the rage. Quick-Slat is for the millennials who want all that, plus speed. Quick-Slat is quicker to produce, quicker to assemble, and quicker to change while retaining the cleanliness, honesty, and versatility of Nelson's design. The world is faster than it was in 1946; our design can be too. One sheet of Ply, fourteen slats, Flat pack travel, and no screws, nails or glue.
