Young Americans is a furniture collection designed around a stem and base system. A single wire-frame base unit accepts a range of interchangeable stemmed accessories that when joined, become a complete object or piece of furniture.

This collection explores ideas of modularity and mid-century form through a contemporary lens. The current series consists of a lamp, stool, and table. These accessories are not definitive but rather, a curated set illustrating the potential within the functional relationship.
