" I love building pieces that require precision. What has become clear to me is the amount of satisfaction gained when hand, tool, and material fruitfully collaborate."
Furniture-maker Enrico Konig creates pieces that combine simple geometric forms with highly figured woods. Konig begins each design with a series of sketches and scale models, which allow him to fine tune shape and proportion. Through repeated experimentation, Konig has developed a process of layering laminated woods over handmade forms in a vacuum press to achieve the dynamic curved pieces for which he is known. Enrico Konig's goal with each design is to balance clean, uncluttered design with the symmetry of beautiful book-matched veneers.
