Design | Fabrication
Our process for design and fabrication is based entirely out of Atlanta, GA. We do everything we can to use local resources as well as local business partners to offer sustainable solutions for our building practices. Given that all of our professional experience lies in design and architecture, our credo is modern sustainable furniture built by designers.
Our goal is to use as much salvaged / reclaimed / recycled material as possible. We get a healthy supply of these materials from old buildings, downed trees, and scrap. In other instances, we search for materials that are harvested in a responsible way, and that are in close proximity to Atlanta. All of these steps are with the hope of minimizing our carbon footprint, and promoting a responsible consumer transaction.
“What is our process and how does it work?” Our goal is to apply this idea of transparency to every aspect of our business and South of Urban practices. By means of our social media presence and other sources of technology, we look to provide our customers | followers with a detailed flow of information about our process. All questions are welcomed.

I have an inherent passion for knowing how things are made and detailed. Our philosophy of transparency not only applies to the flow of information, but also to how a design can tell a story. The best ideas are the ones that emphasize a story and give insight the designers thought process without explanation. Transparency in design and sustainable practices.
My preference is that I live in a city that does not require the use of an auto.. as much. So I sold mine a few years back ventured out to discover something new. That’s not to say that a car isn’t a necessary component of the 21st century modern society or business for that matter, but for now, I choose to commute via bike as much as possible.

I believe that furniture should be significant and well designed — not fabricated using disposable materials. However, my belief is that the essence of sustainable design is in the details, the implementation thereof, not just in the materiality. All components, both seen and unseen, deserve the attention in order to achieve harmony. We feel that these responsible practices, inspired by our modern environment, will give way to a new order of community and commerce of which we are proud to take part.
I have always been a builder of things. My journey and education of design was a vital component to my career, but after being downsized several years ago, I decided not to return to the abstraction of the corporate profession. In turn, I decided to place my focus on the craft of furniture building which is full of creativity, challenges and pleasure. I am a Maker.
