Founded in 1988 by Ted Boerner and Frank Pontes, we are a San Francisco based design studio offering innovative and original furnishings. Encompassing a full range of made-to-order products, this collection is on view in design showrooms nationwide.
Awareness: We encourage an appreciation for everyday objects – not only for their thoughtful design, but for what they are made of, for those who make them, and for what they come to symbolize in our lives.
Connection: We believe design conjures a powerful sense of place. Through conscious choices and responsible relationships with proud and talented craftspeople, we aim to nourish this connection for those who choose our designs.
Essence: Our approach is straightforward, exploring familiar forms using only essential details. In search of simplicity, we balance the idiosyncracies of nature with the clean rhythms of modernism.
