Eben Blaney


I design my furniture to be relatively spare, elegant and useful. My design process involves a great deal of subtraction--taking away excess mass or unnecessary elements that don’t complement or service the main thrust, dramatic gesture or function of the piece. The structures are angular, some rectilinear, some with gentle curves. I use traditional hand tools in combination with modern machinery to shape and join components focusing on creating interesting compositions of negative and positive space and harmonious lines.
