About the New American Design
Born in the early 2000s, in the maker design centers of Brooklyn To California, New American Design was a minimalist reaction against mass furniture and design culture. New American design is now taking shape as the next great design movement of the 21st century after mid-century modern. New American Design tells stories through design, adapting modern aesthetics and minimalist materials through craftsmanship and innovation to create an emotional connection with the objects we live and work on. New American Design is built on the principles of narrative design, sustainability and materiality. New American Design refers to traditional design processes and takes advantage of the imperfection and personality of materials and objects to create character and nostalgia. Timeless in form. Function. Story. Value. Emotion. Design. For the future. Beyond the landfill.
