Eastern Market is most well known for its Saturday farmer’s markets, which have been running for over a century, as well as a historical epicenter in the development of jazz. Our HQ is located within a former meat processing facility and sits adjacent to the Dequindre Cut (a railway line converted into a greenway over the last decade). Inside the Floyd R\\u0026amp;D lab, you'll find a space sprawled out with the latest prototypes, fabric samples, and product tests. This is where our product team over the last two years has been developing the future of our product line.\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/317a748f-0d86-4ed6-9fc6-9b305ceb9680\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-e9956baf-9a14-491b-9919-4c15364bfc6c\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003eProblem solving through design has always been at the core of what we do. The first Floyd Leg in 11 gauge sheet steel was born out of a reaction to disposable furniture by finding an easy way to make a table out of any flat surface material. The 250+ pounds of solid plywood needed to construct the first Floyd Bed Frame finally got our mattress off the floor. Although our product line has evolved a lot since our first products (and we have a lot more room to prototype than we did back then!), this practical design philosophy has led to a range of products living in more than 70,000 homes around the world.\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003eAs we move into the future, we continue to build on what has made Floyd, Floyd. You’ll see us continue to develop modular systems built to grow, evolve, and adapt with you over time. But you’ll see us also push into new directions. This can take the form of bolder experiments in color; finding innovative materials from nature and through recycled means that reduce our carbon footprint; putting out products in the world that may unexpected from what you’ve seen from us before. Regardless, one thing remains true: we will continue to design products of lasting value for you.\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-family: inherit; font-size: 1em; letter-spacing: 0px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThis way of doing things is carried forth today by our talented team, who, combined, have decades of experience previously working for some of the most renowned furniture brands in the world.

And it's this same simplicity that you find in his home.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4ec280de-2be7-4bb5-aa82-904116de2fd5\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003chr\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-95022dec-be3d-45f5-bd27-3d7aef77d92a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: normal;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eWhat was the journey that led you to where you are today?

So I ended up dropping out of college and working in construction. I learned strong skills that enabled me to start designing and building my own pieces and, eventually, full-on design\\\/build projects.

We like to think of vintage design as art. It can be subjective because not everyone will like it, and it's based on feeling. We find it fascinating that the spirit of each piece we've collected lives on and comes with history. You can't find that often with newer pieces designed today. The sustainability behind owning secondhand makes our space feel confident. Every vintage piece we've acquired is viewed as a sculpture, and we like the energy they each create in our home. We also like the charm and characteristics of a well-loved piece.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/ab755a49-d297-473c-9d1f-f53dd2399362\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHow did you start collecting?

However, for us, living with beautiful things such as art, objects, and pieces that feel timeless and universal have always been important. We think as you get older, you start to understand why these things matter. We felt this way while living in our previous space, which was 3 times less square footage than we have now. The difference currently is that we're fortunate enough to have much more room to create our oasis. We've always focused on creating our own world that is special to us and what we like.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-3cf124d8-a74b-49cb-a2ab-33ea66ea8c8f\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhy do you choose to buy vintage\\\/used more often than new\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-family: inherit; font-size: 1em;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThere's specific craftsmanship and beauty that is hard to find in modern design for furniture. The fact that we have chairs from the 1960s in our house amazes us, and that they can still be sat in, all while managing to look cool, relevant, and timeless after all these years, is what does it for us. Today, most objects seem to be produced fast with not much life to live. In contrast, most pieces from the 20th century are intended to age well; they're made from good materials, are well constructed, and have a timeless appearance.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-fw\\\"\\u003e\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box-vertical-align-wrapper\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box shg-c \\\" id=\\\"s-c4a4b38e-7b31-4d5d-8ffe-bfc5765443d2\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box-overlay\\\"\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box-content\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-da49faf5-6014-4d5a-8a5f-9fb81a200d7c\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/abbf9844-432e-4f3e-840e-336a8822020a\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-da49faf5-6014-4d5a-8a5f-9fb81a200d7c' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-719f4b96-3b48-44f0-b505-4b0d3172071b\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhat are some of your favorite pieces in your collection\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-family: inherit; font-size: 1em;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThis is very hard to choose — we love them all for various reasons as they complete our space and define different meanings.

She invited us into her home filled with incredible taste and works of art. She showed us where they once lived, and you could tell she had a hard time parting with the pieces.

Fortunately, we've befriended a few individuals who acquire gorgeous vintage pieces and reach out to us when they find something suitable for our space and general taste. When it comes to bringing vintage into your home, it's important to feel connected with the piece, especially if it's not cheap. The worst is when you purchase something and don't absolutely love it when you get it home. It's equivalent, if not equal, to buying art. Go based on feeling and what you like. The nice part about collecting vintage is depending on the designer, most have a good resale value, so think of it as an investment.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-e02748f9-b788-439b-89a2-82f6fcc74cb4\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHave you always been influenced by design?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eDefinitely, we often talk about how it has always been a part of our lives. For us, design is a lifestyle. Sometimes we feel like the term \\\"design\\\" is boxed in, but ideally, it can mean much more. Beyond subjects like fashion, interiors, and architecture, design can embody how you speak to others or the color of the coffee cup you choose to drink out of in the morning. We believe that design can be anything depending on how you view it. Sometimes, it may be overlooked in even the simplicity of everyday acts. Everything we have taken the time to appreciate in the smallest of formats contributes to what our home represents. Anything from a chair to a piece of art or something as simple as what toaster we use. Design can be everywhere if you take the time to stop and smell the roses.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-1c261a54-f53a-473d-a46c-d26ebc170c12\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/53d47b8e-61cc-4d30-a35f-c830fb69f073\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-1c261a54-f53a-473d-a46c-d26ebc170c12' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-5e454f3b-adbd-4588-a021-d93e5c538f60\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhich design movement do you gravitate towards? \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWe'd probably have to go with the Bauhaus Design Movement.

Personally, I feel blessed that it also functions as my studio workspace. It makes it hard to leave at times because it truly brings us peace, especially providing us with tranquility when coming home. We love the obvious bits about it: the brick, hardwood floor, and bright light, but it's also the sense of community that we have here in the building. The building houses many other creatives, ranging from a barbershop, photographers, designers, chefs, etc. We collectively support each other where possible utilizing each other's resources and talents.

Chimineas (clay or metal fireplaces) with a lounge chair on either side fit beautifully in little jut outs or small patches of grass. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eYour backyard, patio, or balcony are all places of possibility.

As a child, I'd create dream homes with wooden blocks or clay. I'd re-envision my room by sketching floor plans and rearranging furniture, testing out arrangements to see how they affected the way I lived in the space. It gave me a sense of power to be able to change the function and mood of a space and imbue it with fresh possibilities. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI knew I wanted to articulate space in some form, but I didn't know how that would play out. I studied film and had a graphic and editorial design background from working on a college magazine. I worked in other industries like hospitality and event production before landing a job at a design studio called Simplicity in Tokyo in 2014, where I further explored graphic and editorial design, branding, and art direction. I translated the interior design team's plans and presentations, which is how I learned how to read drawings. I moved back to Los Angeles in 2017 to work on the interior design of a 21-floor luxury apartment building, and that's when my career in interior design began.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003eHow do you find that your experience growing up in different cultures influenced your design aesthetic?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eGrowing up biculturally in Los Angeles and spending time in various parts of Japan heightened my awareness of my surroundings. It gave me perspective and has encouraged me to continue seeking other perspectives. From a young age, I saw many ways of doing things instead of deeming things as absolute. It's given me a bigger well to draw from and makes me more open-minded and willing to adopt new design elements. I don't want all my work to be tied to a specific culture or influence.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003eWhat about your time in Japan or studying in Copenhagen shaped you as a designer?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #333333;\\\"\\u003eI was \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #333333;\\\"\\u003ein Copenhagen for six months doing a crash course in design as an exchange student, \\u003c\\\/span\\u003eand I loved the experience-based style of education there.

I try to think about the sustainability of materials and products from several angles, like any ongoing long-term maintenance that may make it less sustainable in the long run. I'd like to figure out sustainable systems of acquiring materials and repurposing construction waste for future projects.

I also helped with project management, which gave me insight into each trade's work and how it was relevant to the next.

Twists, curves, layers, dynamic. Each structure is a work of art; brought to life through physical materials, like steel, concrete, and glass. Each intended to break free from conventional architecture and push the boundaries of what's possible. The designs are among some of the best architectural feats in the world. And in the process, the late Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid, who suddenly passed away in 2016 at the age of 65, became one of the greatest architects of the modern era. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4ec280de-2be7-4bb5-aa82-904116de2fd5\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003chr\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-95022dec-be3d-45f5-bd27-3d7aef77d92a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHadid was born in Baghdad, Iraq, to a wealthy and politically influential family.

An interest she carried since her younger days, Hadid sported bold outfits that matched her personality. While studying in London, she was known for stapling or pinning fabric together to create an outfit, often layering skirts or shirts to complete her look. She told Vogue in 2011, \\\"In a sense, I'm into fashion because it contains the mood of the day, of the moment—like music, literature, and art. I am also very fascinated by the way one can transform cloth and make it do things that it doesn't always do. Architecture is how the person places herself in the space. Fashion is about how you place the object on the person.\\\" Hadid took this fascination for fashion into collaborations with designers like Melissa, Lacoste, and Louis Vuitton. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHer collaborations went as far as furniture, where she created various collections for \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003ca href=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/www.davidgillgallery.com\\\/zaha-hadid\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eDavid Gill\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/a\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e, leaning on her love for fluid design. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eDesigning took other forms in her life.

Then we moved to Portland in 2017, and that's really when Rico and I reconnected. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWhat was the impetus for building The Woodlands Hideout?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eRico: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThis whole thing started back in college for me. I studied architecture at CalPoly SLO and purposefully steered my experiences to be more hands on than most. I was interested in the design\\\/build side of things. I loved working directly with materials and connections, so when it came to designing, I tended to gravitate toward smaller scale projects and even furniture. Graduating in 2006 and then stepping into construction was short lived due to the economic situation in 2008. However, this did serve as a way for me to press into my hobby of photography, and build a career in that alongside my wife. We were very fortunate, and got to travel quite a bit for our work. And while traveling, we got to experience some unique hospitality spaces throughout the country and even the world. That got the ball rolling in my head, as I started to consider designing and building spaces of our own. Our trajectory began shifting as I started utilizing my design and build background to create short term rentals. Building these spaces proved successful, but a part of my soul still longed for a more nature-focused experience. So in June of 2017, we bought the property where The Hideout now sits, and I began refining my designs of what would turn into a ground-up build.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/57c8201c-b8ff-40ec-9442-788ed0b5aa3f\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-719f4b96-3b48-44f0-b505-4b0d3172071b\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWhy did you decide to collaborate and what was your collaboration style?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eRico: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI knew that Duane and Sarah lived in the area and were working on flipping a house at that time. That clued me into Duane’s skill set, so I reached out about collaborating on The Hideout build, as I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it completely by myself. We agreed to partner up on an initial prototype build in early 2019, and then after locking down the design together, we began construction later that year. The vast majority of it was built primarily with our own four hands, which is pretty cool now, knowing that we've touched every part of it. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-family: inherit; font-size: 1em;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eDuane: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eFor me, it was especially refreshing, as I had been doing a lot of interiors, residential type renovation and remodeling.

At such a small scale, I felt like I could wrap my head around all of the aspects of it. One of the biggest design intentions was making a very small space feel expansive and trying to stay within a certain size that we felt was reasonable to transport. So that became our physical design constraints. Knowing the property and the nature of the weather, having a sloping roof was pretty important for maintenance reasons and for the success of the structure. Then it was all about figuring out what we could do on the short side of the building. That really started dictating the floor plan quite a bit. We see a lot of cabins in the woods that have a very rustic feel, which is charming in its own right, but we wanted to create a space that was simple and minimalist and more about the outside than the inside. That was a pretty considerable guiding principle. The cabin wasn't meant to have a super luxurious finish; it really was meant to be more utilitarian. We didn't want to create visual distractions that bring attention to the space.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWhat kind of materials were used to construct The Hideout?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-family: inherit; font-size: 1em;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eRico: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhen it came to choosing exposed materials, we tried to minimize the number of different materials to aid in the simplicity of the space. We ended up choosing materials that were honest to what they were and served a specific function. Even though the OSB (oriented strand board) we used on the walls, ceiling, and cabinetry, isn't typically used as a finish material, we love its texture and warm tones. Additionally, in the bathroom and shower, we used a material that rarely gets left exposed, but instead is what some internal boat parts are made of due to its waterproof, lightweight, but strong nature. With a little bit of sanding and a sealer to make it more wipeable, it turned out to be perfect for our use case.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-fw\\\"\\u003e\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box-vertical-align-wrapper\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box shg-c \\\" id=\\\"s-e274ff31-6472-4ae0-81dc-b7c1db588cee\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box-overlay\\\"\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-box-content\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-be9d76a8-d8e0-4496-b5a7-548b8602de13\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/77254286-3a98-4235-8ab6-cbbbe31280ac\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-be9d76a8-d8e0-4496-b5a7-548b8602de13' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-8beef619-f153-4a70-8d61-65127ccc63df\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWhy did you decide to incorporate Floyd products into The Woodlands Hideout?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eDuane:\\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e We really love the simplicity of Floyd's products and the aesthetic. Their whole vision is really cool and something that I loved. We talked about not really having any furniture in The Hideout and many things being built in. But I feel like we kept coming back to Floyd because of its simplicity. It seemed like something that could really become a part of the space. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eRico: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003eI like that they created a product with components that can be utilized together. Your design and production efforts can go into a certain type of attachment connection that can help bring things together and make a beautiful piece of furniture that's functional and durable. The utilitarianism of their products is connected with our design approach for the space, too. Floyd also seems to be interested in promoting artists and designers as well. They're trying to build a community. So it felt like there was some good alignment with our intentions for the space.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-bec98393-fe24-425a-9771-c4a373705a10\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/1d3cc893-31cc-447c-9021-174892e8abbc\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-bec98393-fe24-425a-9771-c4a373705a10' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-c10344d1-2c18-403f-8988-437af6c64f4a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eTell me more about The Hideout’s philosophy of unplugging.

It was about creating a space that felt safe enough and had a certain comfort level. But it was also about trying to create a space that was accessible, meaning you didn't have to bring a bunch of gear to disconnect. And then also thinking about creating a space that would allow for extended stays, leaning toward creatives and artists looking for a space to disconnect, furthering their journey and art. I feel like it helps humanity produce more beautiful things. So that connection was pretty foundational: setting up a space that could work in all seasons. It bridges this gap between the rustic experience in nature and having all the comforts and amenities of a hotel.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 8px;\\\"\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-fw\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c \\\" id=\\\"s-2a087cd4-4f13-462c-8582-ad5620b80625\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-row\\\" data-col-grid-mode-on=\\\"\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c-lg-6 shg-c-md-6 shg-c-sm-6 shg-c-xs-6\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-da49faf5-6014-4d5a-8a5f-9fb81a200d7c\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/eff9c860-36ee-4540-ad78-8c1c71d33a55\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-da49faf5-6014-4d5a-8a5f-9fb81a200d7c' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c-lg-6 shg-c-md-6 shg-c-sm-6 shg-c-xs-6\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-9b46badf-6daf-4395-a6ca-1b2078adb41a\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/93e7d41b-ee89-4e63-99ea-c75b6d1af7ed\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-9b46badf-6daf-4395-a6ca-1b2078adb41a' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-e561aded-f034-42a7-9b5a-5478b486d07c\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWhat can you tell me about the significance of this piece of land, in particular?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eRico: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe physical location is out east towards Mount Hood. And I think the uniqueness of this particular piece of property was how old the trees were. You can see that these old-growth trees have survived fire, and they're still there. We're able to see the intelligence of an ecosystem and how everything is connected. Being around those old-growth trees, you feel something that's so much greater and more complicated than you that it’s grounding just to be there. When you think about it, we're all made up of the same stuff. One of our guests was a woman in her seventies. She loved looking out the window and seeing what she called a host tree. A host tree is a tree that has fallen and has become one with the ground. There's life growing from it. It provides the energy and the nutrients for more life to grow out of it. And she had the wisdom and awareness to say that her goal is to become a host tree, to become one with the Earth. She wants beautiful things to grow from it. That's really what it's all about: to clue us into that connective cycle. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003eDuane: \\u003c\\\/strong\\u003eWe didn’t build The Hideout as something that everyone can be like, \\u003cem\\u003ethis is so cool or well designed\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e.

Parlor rooms and chamber suits became a Tetris of needlepoint seats, tea carts, rocking chairs, and lush fabrics. Pomp outweighed necessity. Furniture gushed with personality, celebrating specialization, ornamentation, and decoration. Regality was not reserved for the wealthy class. As Ken Ames says in \\u003cem\\u003eGrand Rapids Furniture: The Story of America’s Furniture City\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e, “The furniture industry flourished because people deeply believed in furniture. They believed that it expressed important truths about them as individuals, about their personality and character, about the quality of their lives, and about the level and nature of their civilization. To most people who shared the values of mainstream Victorian culture, living the good life meant living with good furniture.” \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4ec280de-2be7-4bb5-aa82-904116de2fd5\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003chr\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c \\\" id=\\\"s-deeb665d-48f1-4bd0-adac-7278d1d966ba\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-row\\\" data-col-grid-mode-on=\\\"true\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c-lg-6 shg-c-md-6 shg-c-sm-6 shg-c-xs-6\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-0dd1ed3a-aa0f-4d68-8969-1c1e6cb42039\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/f4cdb2dd-6dea-4df9-9acb-e1dc0f8aab45\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-0dd1ed3a-aa0f-4d68-8969-1c1e6cb42039' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-1268fa51-e82a-4a14-a7e0-4789e7d775be\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003ePostcard of the Phoenix Furniture Company factory and lumber yard in Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1909.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c-lg-6 shg-c-md-6 shg-c-sm-6 shg-c-xs-6\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-18875868-025e-4050-9a5d-d4f7eb590b5f\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/aaa9fd7c-1028-42d7-beda-4f3dc06b1ad5\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-18875868-025e-4050-9a5d-d4f7eb590b5f' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-f3a5ece8-895d-4600-bc79-1b94c7eab156\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eBerkey and Gay Furniture Company, Rubbing Department, 1929.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-95022dec-be3d-45f5-bd27-3d7aef77d92a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e“The Furniture City”\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe furniture industry of Michigan made its debut at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial, the first World Fair hosted by the United States. Grand Rapids-based furniture companies such as Berkey \\u0026amp; Gay, Nelson, Matter \\u0026amp; Company, and Phoenix Furniture Company led the way for innovative and fast-paced design, proving that a mechanized process of manufacturing had developed beyond the traditional, handmade approach. Subsequently, towns across Michigan erected dozens of factories replete with mechanized technology. The state reached its golden years in mass-producing signature cabinets, tables, couches, and other pieces for the home. No other city producing furniture in the United States could outpace the production taking place in Grand Rapids. The city quickly garnered its title, “The Furniture City.” Manufacturing overflowed into the city of Holland and later, into Zeeland. These cities centered around furniture manufacturing, employing nearly half of its population with jobs that touched every part of the process. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eBut why Michigan? And more specifically, why Grand Rapids? For one, 95% of Michigan housed untouched forests, and Grand Rapids itself sat directly adjacent to wood such as pine, walnut, and oak. The state also had sufficient labor, optimistic investors, quality craftsmanship, and an appreciation for technology. Individuals moving West, namely immigrants from Poland, Germany, and the Netherlands, fell in love with the land and dropped their packs. Michigan’s infrastructure flourished with the development of railroads, bridges, canals, and roads that served the most efficient routes to and from the factories, which sat next to the Grand River and its reliable supply of power, water, and transportation.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-22db57ea-a390-454b-affd-bfc24bb8c3ad\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\u003cdiv id=\\\"slider-s-22db57ea-a390-454b-affd-bfc24bb8c3ad\\\" class=\\\"shg-sld\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-sld-content\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-sld-nav-button shg-sld-left \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003csvg width=\\\"1792\\\" height=\\\"1792\\\" viewbox=\\\"0 0 1792 1792\\\" xmlns=\\\"http:\\\/\\\/www.w3.org\\\/2000\\\/svg\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cpath d=\\\"M1203 544q0 13-10 23l-393 393 393 393q10 10 10 23t-10 23l-50 50q-10 10-23 10t-23-10l-466-466q-10-10-10-23t10-23l466-466q10-10 23-10t23 10l50 50q10 10 10 23z\\\"\\u003e\\u003c\\\/path\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/svg\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\n\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-sld-slides shg-sld-slides-padded\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-sld-item shg-sld-active\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-sld-fade\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-83c37610-e4dc-4967-945d-9ddcafa65ac8\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe Autographed Suites were created in celebration of Berkey \\u0026amp; Gay's 75th anniversary and shown for the first time at the 100th Grand Rapids Furniture Market in January 1928.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-286eb532-c4d4-49ee-a1f1-70f46aca1fdc\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/2cde3fca-95d2-488c-901e-23f5a785a625\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-286eb532-c4d4-49ee-a1f1-70f46aca1fdc' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-99cdb6e8-1192-4f77-a529-33cc5aa723cb\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eAutographed Suite Furniture Plate, Berkey \\u0026amp; Gay Furniture Company, The Cowley, Designed by J.

Additionally, by the 1930s, the arrival of the Great Depression muted the value placed on stylish living, and people’s needs reoriented around comfort, low cost, and simplicity. From 1945 onwards, a majority of residential furniture manufacturing moved away from Michigan, reestablishing itself in North Carolina and other Southern factories. But not all was lost. By the end of WWII, Christian G. Carron, former head of the curatorial department of The Public Museum of Grand Rapids, notes that furniture companies in Grand Rapids “nearly doubled, from 47 in 1940 to 88 in 1947…[becoming] clear that the pent-up need to buy furniture after 15 years of depression and war, combined with the increased number of marriages and new homes under construction, meant prosperity for furniture makers.” However, post-war recovery in Grand Rapids was slower due to the fact that families did not have the same kind of spending capital they once had. Furniture was\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e \\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003ea luxury, especially at the kind of caliber produced by furniture makers in Grand Rapids. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eChange was edging closer. Factories were closing. Others were being bought out by larger players. Residential furniture was no longer prized, as it once was. The good news? Post-war America was in a state of rebuilding and all of those buildings needed furniture. The same talent that once took on residential manufacturing pivoted, applying their craftsmanship in woodworking and upholstering to meet the durability and ergonomics required of commercial furniture manufacturing that supplied places like schools, offices, and large auditoriums. Companies such as Herman Miller, Haworth, and Steelcase championed commercial furniture designed for efficiency and mass production. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/d72c66f1-a997-48ca-a8f1-cd52bb2963d4\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-972f0a56-dad5-4777-8be2-f477e467fea5\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eCharles and Ray Eames in their home, Los Angeles, California, 1958\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-719f4b96-3b48-44f0-b505-4b0d3172071b\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eIn this novel landscape, furniture manufacturing in Michigan found its footing due to the leadership of Herman Miller’s founder, D.J. DePree. Although DePree himself was rather austere and conservative, he remained open to outside influence. After DePree bought Star Furniture Company, he teamed up with New York-based designer, Gilbert Rohde. Their partnership paved the way for innovative design that would define the twentieth century. By 1945, designers at Herman Miller, including George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, and Isamu Noguchi, shifted away from traditional, ornate furniture. Instead, they leaned into a more modern and experimental aesthetic: bright colors, odd shapes, and varying weights that could produce something equally beautiful using half the amount of material. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe movement of the 1950s and 1960s ushered in what’s now known as mid-century modern design. Notable designs of the era included the Eames Fiberglass Armchair, Robert Propst’s “Action Office” cubicle, and Nelson’s bubble lamps. Floyd’s Head of Product, Tony Rotman, says, “From my viewpoint, mid-century design was a response to a cultural shift in society. Those designers were producing furniture for the masses that was so inexpensive, high quality, and very functional to the shifts in how people were living.” The highly regarded Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan served as a breeding ground for some of the most influential mid-century designers and their iconic work. Although mid-century designs phased out during the latter half of the 1960s, popularity surged once again in the 1980s and 1990s, prompting reissues of signature pieces and satisfying the demand for a direct to consumer model. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-f01c5ab0-bd22-4e0b-9e3b-b117a710059c\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/6298edfb-dee3-4b3f-b262-e7339df70aba\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-f01c5ab0-bd22-4e0b-9e3b-b117a710059c' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-dc0fb4b5-e93c-451f-8d74-62231eb5fd68\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eEames Fiberglass Arm Chair\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-6a553ea1-a930-4bcc-97e7-2d60f737e6e2\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003chr\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-80a12f34-b2a5-463a-ae53-45b29a03715f\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cstrong\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eFloyd gets its start in Detroit.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/strong\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eFloyd co-founders Alex O’Dell and Kyle Hoff first met in Detroit at North Corktown’s Practice Space.

Many of Floyd’s suppliers are multigenerational businesses: industry veterans who pride themselves on true craftsmanship, institutional knowledge, and respect for the design iteration process. “Being in Western Michigan, the whole entire supply chain is right here at our fingertips, within a 30 mile radius,” says Todd Folkert, CEO of Bold Furniture, one of Floyd’s Muskegon-based manufacturing partners. “A number of our employees, their fathers worked for Steelcase.” For these individuals, Folkert adds that the intrigue lies in being able to both influence and shape work environments and larger design trends for corporate America. The longevity in career makes sense in the context of nineteenth-century Grand Rapids furniture makers, whose typical trajectory required patience and dedication, putting in years of apprenticeship before moving up the ladder to a journeyman and then an expert. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eAkin to Folkert’s employees, Floyd’s very own Tony Rotman grew up in West Michigan, where his dad worked at Herman Miller for 40 years. Rotman speaks to the pride and resiliency of manufacturing companies in the area. “The working mentality of West Michigan is culture, community, and resourcefulness. It’s working hard, not wasting anything, and smart thinking.” Rotman returned to Michigan after working on IKEA’s product development team in Sweden. Similar to how mid-century modern designers were responding to a cultural shift in society, Rotman says, “What excites me most about Floyd is that we’re pushing into the 21st century with an obvious nod and love for those who came before us, but focusing on the problems that we face today: climate change, chemicals and materials, human and environmental health. One of our design principles is [asking the question] ‘Why does this deserve to exist?’”\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-046cfcbd-b10c-47d8-94e8-4676fc11e69c\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\" data-animations='[\\\"\\\"]'\\u003e\\u003cp style=\\\"line-height: 9px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-size: 9px; color: #ef4123;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e1.

I'm not sure exactly when you qualify as a New Yorker, but I think, at my core, I've mostly retained my chill Californian outlook after all this time. Growing up in Oakland, I used to visit family on the East Coast every few years and was always drawn to the creative energy and pace of the city here. I went to college in the Bay Area, and as much as I love the access to nature and the balance of life there, I was hungry to get out. I don't know that I believed my current career as a fashion editor was an available option to me, but I followed my interests through internships and eventually landed where I am today — a writer, consultant, and editor. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eLast year, I moved from living in Manhattan (I'd spent the last five years on the Lower East Side) out to Clinton Hill in Brooklyn.

I went to college not knowing exactly what I wanted to study — I considered being an archeologist for a while, ha! I knew I wanted writing to be an element of my work, but I wanted to explore history, sociology, and all these other things … I think I wanted to contextualize what I was writing; to put ideas into a larger framework. Political Economics was a way for me to do that. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhile I was studying, I spent every semester doing a different internship in something related to writing, the coolest being when I worked at Radio Free Europe in Prague, a news organization funded by the State Department. With every internship I had, I always found myself drawn back to the storytelling element. I was keeping a personal blog while I traveled abroad (as one did back in 2012), and I liked the format of online writing.

I've always been a big reader — pre-COVID, I used to host a book club, but it has gone dormant — so I like to spend downtime doing that as well. Also, a personal hobby is music. I grew up singing, playing piano, and guitar, and as an adult, I'm very mediocre at all three.

I buy a lot of furniture vintage, so the aesthetic is more just a combining of different items that make me happy. I'm definitely attracted to natural elements like wood and stone. Also, I recently realized my living room has a lot of blue elements. It wasn't purposeful, but I like the cool, relaxed element the color brings to my space.

I live in a city with one of the best metro systems, yet I generally take my bicycle or drive to get around. I prefer early mornings and the daytime to the night. However, on occasion, I find myself in my most creative space at night and try to take advantage of that when it comes. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eMy work has been the instrument responsible for most parts of my being — outside of how I identify with it and how it identifies me, work has brought me around the world, my closest friends, and has generally pushed me to live with purpose. While work plays this integral role in my daily life, I am trying to be more cognizant of the fact that it's not everything — finding balance and specifically doing a better job of being present to issues and people that are not directly a part of my work orbit. Furthermore, I would like to continue learning, surf more, cook more, get back to writing, music and generally put more effort into finding alternative sources of fulfillment outside of work.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-761d6f6b-1c52-4cce-b4b3-d00868264151\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400; color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWhen you were younger, you were an athlete — a snowboarder — and you competed on a national level.

I had a few sponsors, one of which was Billabong. They used to send boxes of gear, and sometimes I would go by the warehouse to pick things up. Don't get me wrong, I was always happy and knew even at that age how fortunate I was, but I was never a fan of the product. Being inundated with clothing led me to crave things that were more focused on simplicity and quality. In one of those warehouse trips as a kid, I saw some designers in the offices working. There were various prototype samples and CAD's lying around. I never really thought much about the process up until that point. But my interest was piqued, and I have been going down that rabbit hole ever since. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWere there any lessons\\\/practices from your days as an athlete that you find you apply to your work today?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThere are two that stick out to me. The first would be allowing myself to be a child. Not the tantrums, but the curiosity. Each year it gets a bit harder. We form habits, and they're tough to break, but to get back to square one is an opportunity to think limitlessly and with an open mind. Using this example sounds corny, but when Gelfand did the first ollie on a skateboard, he blew minds and broke boundaries. One small idea can forever change our perception of a sport, company, or industry. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe second would be to leave nothing on the table.

We had an account in Japan that started to place some big orders. One of the items they were specifically looking for from us was ball caps, and they needed to be made in the U.S. At that time, there weren't any online databases for finding factories; it was still good ole print and paper. You had to find a broker who would sell you a directory, and I didn't have money to spare on a directory then. But I had a phone camera, and I cheekily took a few photos of some factories in a broker's directory. This led me to a factory named Watman Headwear Corp. based on the border of Brooklyn and Queens in Ridgewood. We ended up working on hats for about a year together, at which point the owner offered up the factory to me. I was 20 years old and filled with grand ideas but hardly a clue what to do with them or how to make them happen. As a designer at that time, I knew how difficult it was to sample, meet factory minimums and really produce anything other than a simple screen-printed t-shirt.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI wanted to do more, and I thought that if this takeover could somehow happen, I would own the ability to produce for myself and on my terms. So I contacted my friends Daniel McRorie and Kyle Mosholder about the opportunity to turn this into reality. I respected both of them massively for their own work — one a shoemaker and a bagmaker with his own brand. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eTogether we put up a Kickstarter to buy out Watman, and from there, Knickerbocker was born. Knickerbocker was two businesses - the first being the manufacturing company and factory space, which was operated with Dan and Kyle. The second was the brand label, which was my own venture. Ultimately the manufacturing business shut down after five years as we all had different visions for that part of the business. But in the end, those years in the factory were incredibly inspiring. I worked alongside some incredibly talented individuals and had the best of times. They were foundational years for shaping how we look at community, responsibility, and intent as a company today. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eMuch of menswear is derived from workwear. Workwear is a form of utilitarian wear, which has form, function, and durability at its heart. Clothes are meant to be lived in, and they should be a reliable companion. This category of menswear is where some of the best stories live, and those stories are what we often fall in love with within a garment. Take Burberry, for example. Now a luxury brand, but their formative years were spent in the mud, outfitting the backs of the British military with their now-iconic trench coats in WWI. In designing any collection, we undoubtedly look to certain aspects of history as a guiding influence for cultural significance and what it has taught us about the importance of garment construction from the cloth to the sewing.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-1570771f-82cc-4d56-b17a-15ffe768ef59\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/0b28e857-dc77-4c4b-ba4a-a19aed0f4f3a\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-1570771f-82cc-4d56-b17a-15ffe768ef59' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-80a12f34-b2a5-463a-ae53-45b29a03715f\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eYou were pretty young when you started Knickerbocker.

But equally important is to enjoy every bit of it and not let fear of failure keep you away. Failed ventures lead to successful ones all the time. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400; color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eThe first flagship store for Knickerbocker opened earlier this year.

The store was designed by myself and Sean Davidson. The brand has matured over the past few years, and we wanted to make sure the store reflected that. The overall design was highly inspired by architect Jean Prouvé and his \\\"Better Days\\\" house. The palette was kept minimal to not overpower the merchandise. Smooth long curves were met with hard corners to create unique shapes. We brought in a range of materials to texturally divide the space using lacquered wood, stainless steel, carpet, caning, and white oak.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe Knickerbocker Bookstore is really about sharing the brand's muses with our customers.

I enjoy modern design for its simplicity and openness, but you still need a home to feel like home. If I had to pick an era as a favorite, it would be the late 40s into the 50s. Post-WWII ushered in a lot of great designers with manufacturing's changing landscape. I'm mostly drawn to the simple and industrious designs from this period. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI think personality is best reflected in the small objects around your home.

Everything from the shapes of interior spaces to the structural system, glass, access to the site, the relationship of the interior spaces to the exterior spaces, and the materials and textures. It all works together to create an almost infinite set of combinations. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eIt's also just such a rich discipline.

Ray Kappe, who founded SCI_Arc, has been one of my biggest influences. Not necessarily aesthetically (although I love his work), but it was the way he approached the profession and created his own opportunities. His was a great example of designing one's own career. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cbr\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eIn general, though, I'm most curious about innovation and experimentation, which sometimes reinforces a more temporal sort of building. One of the best is Alvar Aalto's Muuratsalo Experimental House, in which he tested materials and building technologies.

I'm an artist, but I don't like to just stick with one title. I find I'm sometimes an artist and graphic designer or art director and designer.

I liked the calm and quietness of the neighborhood and the architecture of the brownstones. I remember walking around one day, and I walked through Clinton Hill and Fort Greene, and I just remember saying to myself that this is where I'm going to live. It felt cool because the neighborhood was Black, and I felt like I was at home because of how beautiful and preserved these neighbors are. My favorite movie is Clockers (1995), a Spike Lee film mostly filmed in Fort Greene, and after seeing it in person, I just decided that this is where I wanted to be. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/a48a73d9-db4e-41a8-b8af-429389200b5e\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"Custom white oval dining table with colored sides inspired by Serge Poliakoff\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003ch2 style=\\\"line-height: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023; font-family: inherit; font-size: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhat does home mean to you\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/h2\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhen I first moved to Greenpoint, my attitude towards home was different.

So it became the kind of thing where I would tell myself, \\\"This is where I pay my rent, this is where I rest my head, and that's it.\\\" It took a few years until I settled into my neighborhood and was able to get comfortable with the scene and form a routine. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHome is where you can be yourself — you must be happy there because it's your sanctuary.

One of the first pieces I bought when I moved in was this blue painting that my friend Caleb Weiss made, who I know through skating. A few years ago, he started painting and posting pictures of his artwork, and I always told myself that once I got my own spot, I would get one of his pieces to hang on the wall. I like the construction and materials of the piece; blue makes me feel good, and it feels reflective of me. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eAlso, I have a friend, Vince Skelly, who makes wood sculptures, and I asked him to make me a few stools; one of them is made out of the trunk of a tree from a street that we used to hang out on in L.A.  \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThen I had to decide how I would go about purchasing the big items: my bed, dining room table, and chairs.

When I went to pick it up, I noticed a lounge chair with an ottoman that I thought was cool. It was lined in black leather, and I decided to have it relined in hide, and it came out beautifully. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI had this idea for a bed but wasn't convinced to buy anything that I had seen, so I called my friend Kevin Graver, and he made me my frame — a low platform bed \\u003ca title=\\\"simple modern headboard\\\" href=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/floydhome.com\\\/products\\\/the-floyd-headboard\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003ewith a headboard\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/a\\u003e. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThen, when I was looking for a table, I worked with Kevin to develop the idea. I gave him a cardboard cutout of the shape I wanted and my plan: the table should have a laminate top and sides, and the top would have a different texture, and the sides would be different colors. The table shape is inspired by a painting called “Composition Abstraite” (1968) by Serge

In the early 1970s, he brought vibrant colors and geometric shapes to the skyline of Detroit. An untitled mural — recently refurbished — from 1974 still enlivens the bricks at 234 W. Larned Street. At the same time, he advocated for other artists, co-founding the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit, a non-profit, community art space, in 1979. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eAs he fostered conversations around contemporary art and artists, his works spoke powerful odes to the joy of creation. McGee’s optimism perhaps best shines through in “Noah’s Ark: Genesis,” completed in 1984. Here, a bold combination of painting, collaged fabric, and masonite appears in perpetual motion. It’s a festive celebration of what it means to be alive. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eEven with opportunities to showcase his art internationally and in major U.S. cities, he preferred the city where he first saw lights.

Her use of glass, steel, light, shadow, and video projection is uniquely paired to evoke a sense of interconnectedness and wonder. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHear from Yazmin about her art, inspiration, and current work on display at Month of Design.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4ec280de-2be7-4bb5-aa82-904116de2fd5\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003chr\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-95022dec-be3d-45f5-bd27-3d7aef77d92a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003ch2 style=\\\"line-height: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023; font-size: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eTell us a bit about yourself and what got you into art\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/h2\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI actually started out studying biomedical sciences. I had always had a passion for drawing and painting when I was younger. Still, I didn't really know anybody who was an artist, so I didn't think it was possible to become an artist. Then, two years into biomedical sciences, I realized it just wasn't what I wanted to study and switched completely into the creative route. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI spent one semester at the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit, took a year and a half off and did a little bit of film school, and then came back to CCS a year and a half later.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/9421086b-4589-46d6-944e-f62bae46f703\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"Blowing pink and yellow glass in studio\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-bc9b5076-5421-4671-8563-56213097e69c\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cem\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023; font-size: 12px;\\\"\\u003eArtist Yazmin Dababneh working with glass.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/em\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003ch2 style=\\\"line-height: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023; font-family: inherit; font-size: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWhat is it that inspired you to move into the type of art you do\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/h2\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI created a lot of hyper-realistic work when working in 2D, and I did explore abstract painting. It was fun, but there was just something missing. Then, I came across a glass-blowing studio. When I first saw it in person, it was just so mesmerizing — the way the material is so unpredictable and fluid. The different states that it goes through just fascinated me. I think glass is what forced me to start working three-dimensionally.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eAnd then, after COVID happened, I lost access to studios.

But eventually, I left and traveled for a while, and when I came back to the U.S. and was waiting to hear back from jobs, I painted — A LOT. Eventually, a small business asked me to create a series of paintings for their shop, which sort of snowballed into making commissions and eventually murals. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI couldn't have planned for it, but now I feel so spoiled and can't imagine doing anything other than what I am doing right now.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-c10344d1-2c18-403f-8988-437af6c64f4a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003ch2 style=\\\"line-height: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023; font-size: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHas your style evolved over time?

I tried to really keep feelings of anxiety at bay because with edible plants you have a lot of constant responsibilities. You're mulching, you're pruning, you're doing pest control. Each of them has a personality of their own. There are times when it can feel like every time I go outside, I'm like, \\\"Oh, fuck.

There's also a lot less pressure in terms of everyday cooking, because when you make a salad from the garden and you pick 20 different greens that are just right there, you don't have to do much. You can just put vinegar and olive oil on it and it tastes delicious. I think there's this sort of comfort with simplicity because you feel so accomplished already at having grown the vegetables.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI'm a nurturer, and plants just make you feel like you're constantly moving in the right direction. So for me, that's important. I think as an East Coaster in LA, I miss the seasons. The best way here to really actually connect with the seasons is to grow food, because you experience the reality of them with your hands.

So, we tried to view the whole thing holistically: we heavily insulated the house, there are a lot of passive cooling elements, and we didn’t install a gas line: so the balance of the house is more energy in, less energy out, even though we charge our car off the solar! \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/28279608-d81f-45b6-97be-2db833f17a7c\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"Natural wood kitchen with island mid century modern vibe\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003ch2 style=\\\"line-height: 24px;\\\"\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023; font-family: inherit; font-size: 24px;\\\"\\u003eWhat is working well for you guys, and what still feels like a day to day hurdle while trying to live as ecologically as possible?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/h2\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eWe do keep an eye on what appliances or electricity-reliant machines we add to our ecosystem because we want to stay net zero and generate as much, or more, energy as we expend. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe good thing is, once you have the system in place, it pretty much runs itself.

I’m reactive at some points, so after my roommate moved out in June, I wanted to have a big table. We had a circular dining table that was against the wall, but I never had a table that you could sit at and really embrace — something that would provoke conversation. But I didn’t want a circle again, and the room is a perfect square, so I didn’t want a square table. So, what if a table was a flower shape? It’s a circle in its formation, but it’s much more sculptural. I wanted it to have a carpenter's table feel, with my interpretation of sawhorse legs, and then I made chairs.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/d34ce87e-0c4a-4ac2-8570-61ebb96ccb1b\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-005deff3-7a32-4827-bdce-1f6d2282c1c5' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-4cdc838d-35ba-45c7-94e7-d64aad1c8bbd\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eWere you and your old roommate equally invested in what the apartment looked like?\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eHe was so much more practical. For him, it was a place to eat, sleep, and shower. For me, it was always this vibrating thing in the back of my head. I thought that there were so many things that this place could be. At the start of 2019 I designed shelves with a carpenter for my office, this tiny room at the front of our apartment. That was the first time I ever worked with someone like that, and I really liked it, but I wasn’t thinking in terms of, ‘I’m going to design this,’ or ‘I’m a designer.’ It was just: this is what this room needs, and I can give it to it. I thought about how to maximize the space’s potential. That’s always been the question, even with the table: what does this space need? What does it want? My roommate used to say that I liked beautiful things, but I don’t really think about beauty. I think about necessity. It's about honoring and activating the architecture.\\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c \\\" id=\\\"s-deeb665d-48f1-4bd0-adac-7278d1d966ba\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-row\\\" data-col-grid-mode-on=\\\"\\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c-lg-6 shg-c-md-6 shg-c-sm-6 shg-c-xs-6\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-0dd1ed3a-aa0f-4d68-8969-1c1e6cb42039\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/090292ee-f105-42f2-a171-28d7ec7ea1e3\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-0dd1ed3a-aa0f-4d68-8969-1c1e6cb42039' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c-lg-6 shg-c-md-6 shg-c-sm-6 shg-c-xs-6\\\"\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-18875868-025e-4050-9a5d-d4f7eb590b5f\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/353b925d-fcff-4c66-960e-a8736e01a3b7\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-18875868-025e-4050-9a5d-d4f7eb590b5f' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n \\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-719f4b96-3b48-44f0-b505-4b0d3172071b\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eDo you think you would have made the flower table last year if we weren’t in a pandemic?

Silhouette is something that I think a lot about. I was always looking for pants that laid perfectly over my shoes, or a shirt that could dance on my body. During the pandemic, I wasn’t getting dressed for anything, so I had a lot of pent-up creative energy. I don’t think I would have made furniture if I didn't have the time and space to reflect inside. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eIt was really an intimidating process. I collaborated with friends on it for a few months, and everyone kept telling me the flower table wouldn’t be structurally sound, that it couldn’t be this or that, that it needed a metal base instead of the sawhorse legs. But I wasn’t trying to make something that already existed. It needed to exist in the exact way that I saw it in my mind, which was very specific: no lines. I want to be able to see through the object. That’s always the most important operating principle for me. I never want to look at anything in my entire life, if I’m alive, where I can see a discrete table and a base. I want to see one object, made of the same material, with no seams. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-80a12f34-b2a5-463a-ae53-45b29a03715f\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eCan you tell me more about the chairs?

They’re both arched backs, but one has an arched front and the other has a square front. The process was so intuitive. My fabricator would ask me how thick the back of the chair is, and I’d hold out my hand to show him, and he’d measure the distance between my fingers. And then we made one with a rounded back and kept building from there. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eI was thinking about Judd, as someone who works in the similar material as me and as a reference point, but his furniture took itself too seriously. It announced itself in a way that was so not fun. He’s really into squares and boxes but I’m into circles. Hard, round edges and rounded lines. That’s what birthed the rounded back because I wanted something that wasn’t retro. And the chairs are engraved on the back and surfaces of the panels of wood, which gives them more texture and a visual weight. Judd’s furniture work is more oriented around hard lines, there’s no mystery to how the object comes together and what makes the object work. It doesn’t feel like magic. It just didn’t really feel like something special. It didn’t feel like a collector’s item. I want an object that feels so special. No table or chair are the same; because each sheet of wood has a different texture or coloring, so no two items are the same which I really appreciate conceptually. That’s true of all the things I collect — ceramics, furniture. I want it to feel singular. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\n\\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-c shogun-image-container shg-align-center\\\" style=\\\"opacity: 1;\\\" id=\\\"s-da49faf5-6014-4d5a-8a5f-9fb81a200d7c\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\u003cimg data-src=\\\"https:\\\/\\\/i.shgcdn.com\\\/148b1d24-18b7-4aed-9680-39f5b36d0203\\\/-\\\/format\\\/auto\\\/-\\\/preview\\\/3000x3000\\\/-\\\/quality\\\/lighter\\\/\\\" width=\\\"\\\" height=\\\"\\\" style=\\\"\\\" alt=\\\"\\\" class=\\\"shogun-image shogun-lazyload\\\"\\u003e\\n \\n \\n \\n \\n \\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003cscript type=\\\"text\\\/javascript\\\"\\u003e\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array();\\n window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-da49faf5-6014-4d5a-8a5f-9fb81a200d7c' })\\n\\u003c\\\/script\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-3cf124d8-a74b-49cb-a2ab-33ea66ea8c8f\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eHow would you describe the rest of your apartment?

It’s like I’m writing an essay. Every room has a story or thesis statement, which is really driven by the architecture of the room. The anchor for the dining room is the table. Everyone has their own relationship to the flower table. People always talk about how everyone has their own space to sit within each petal, but I never even thought about that. The table provokes a very specific kind of vulnerability. We call the conversations that we have around it flower talk. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"font-weight: 400;\\\"\\u003eThe anchor for the living room is this orange painting by my friend’s aunt, it’s called Acanthus, which was painted in Italy and framed in Los Angeles for her solo show in 1980.

The couch is a sectional with a rounded back that looks like one object. It curves in with the bay window. That’s in conversation with the painting. I don’t even notice the painting, the table, or the sofa anymore. I’ve pushed them out of my head. It’s like learning how to let go of things after they’ve materialized. It’s cathartic, even to have the sofa here—that lived in my head for a long

Now I feel like I’m meeting myself. When I was in high school, I spent a lot of time at my friends’ houses and would think about why they bought this or that chair or why all the kitchens in the Pacific Palisades and Brentwood looked the same. It was mostly a class thing to have certain items that signified meaning or status, and it was so boring to me. There were so few people who were experimental, whose houses were representative of who they were as people. I want to live in someone else’s interiority. I’m learning how to spend time outside of myself in these different places because I’m just used to living within, in my interiority and in my imagination, and I’m not used to engaging with it outside myself. I have had all these ideas for such a long time, and I never knew that I could make things in this way. It’s sort of an overwhelming feeling. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\n\\u003c\\\/div\\u003e\\n\\u003cdiv id=\\\"s-c10344d1-2c18-403f-8988-437af6c64f4a\\\" class=\\\"shg-c \\\"\\u003e\\n \\u003cdiv class=\\\"shg-rich-text shg-theme-text-content\\\"\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e\\u003cspan style=\\\"color: #ef4023;\\\"\\u003eI know that you’ve talked about the political implications of your photography.

For so long, I moved through the world as a witness. I was just collecting information and seeking out new experiences. I was asking myself a lot of questions, and that’s how it materialized in a lot of the photography. I was very curious. I was looking for love, and I was able to find love in those portraits that I took. And with designing and writing, I have a lot of things that I’ve been thinking about that I’m ready to finally share. I want to make lights, wall fixtures, and rugs. I have ideas for plates, paintings, and sculptures. I wish someone would let me design a house. I want to design a restaurant. For years, I was learning about myself. I was afraid to share who I was because I never really felt like there was space to live outside of myself. And now, I’m not afraid to inhabit the world outside of me. I have this saying that good art is like a skate trick. I finally feel like I landed the ollie, and now it’s time to learn a new trick. \\u003c\\\/span\\u003e\\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003e \\u003c\\\/p\\u003e\\n\\u003cp\\u003eFor more about Emmanuel
