At Random Orbit Studio, we strive to build furniture and decorative objects that are elegant and imaginative, sophisticated yet playful. Though wood is our primary medium, we o#en use a combination of materials, textures, curving surfaces, and rich colors to express our ideas. Our sources of inspiration are similarly varied. We admire the visual power of folk art, the immediacy of expression achieved with humble materials. We can be equally inspired by a beautiful desert plant, a piece of ancient Egyptian art, or a castoff of our modern industrial civilization. Taking advantage of ideas that develop as we design and build, we o#en create related pieces in series. Though our work is finely made, we emphasize form, color and texture over joinery. The interaction between these combined elements gives our work its subtle intrigue.
