Tucker Robbins: Pierced Cube

Tucker Robbins is a former monk turned world traveler turned "modern primitivist" furniture designer for whom rare, sustainable woods are like fine wine. The first acacia wood Hollow Cube he made was pierced through as an accident--proving there are no accidents.

  • well designed, stylish.

It would be a challenge to find a man who has more fun than Mike Heltzer. He makes elegant, award-winning furniture, lives and works in a renovated boatyard along the Chicago River, and restores and redesigns yachts. "It’s hard to believe how unconventional my life is now, considering I was originally an attorney with a big Chicago law firm," he laughs. Heltzer Furniture marries modern technology and hand-crafting in designs that integrate metals, textiles, stone and wood. Each piece is finished to enhance, both aesthetically and structurally, its natural characteristics. Collections are available through interior designers and architects.

A part-time teacher of design and metal fabrication at New York City’s Parsons School of Design, Peter Mann spends most of his time creating furniture in his Jersey City, NJ, studio. Having worked with metal professionally since he was 16, Mann enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design at the age of 30. Ten years ago, armed with a degree in industrial design, he launched his own line of furniture, most of it melding metal and wood. The pieces have sleek, contemporary lines, and Mann also incorporates leather into many of his designs. All of his furniture is made to order and is available in custom sizes and materials.

The tens of millions of board feet of Douglas fir that supported the Southern Pacific trestle across the Great Salt Lake account for the bulk of the inventory at Trestlewood, a salvage operation with offices in Idaho and Utah. Salts and other trace minerals in the lake water produce unusual color values in the wood--gray to purple to gold--also renowned for its strength. Since 1996, the company has supplemented its stock with mammoth beams extracted from docks and warehouses, redwood from commercial pickle vats, a ready supply of disused farm buildings, sawmills and telegraph poles and massive logs of heart and white pine lifted from northern riverbeds.

Brooks is equally equipped to produce beautiful, highly customized kitchen hoods and sinks in a variety of different metals, and will also do custom door millwork.
