Portrait of furniture designer Brian Kane for Wall Street Journal

A studio visit with furniture designer Brian Kane. This was an assignment for the Wall Street Journal and my shortest commute ever, Brian’s studio is just down the street from me in the Mission. Lots of interesting backdrops to choose from since he starts his designs with pen and paper and also fabricates prototypes in his workshop. It’s very likely you’ve sat on one of his creations before, a lot of his designs can be found in public spaces. The orange Swoop chair is super comfortable and beautiful, you can see the large sketch of the design in the background. Read the whole story here.
