San Francisco and New York-based design store The Future Perfect introduces “In Stock”, a new section of their website featuring ready-to-ship furniture and lighting. Limited quantities available for a distinctly desirable selection of works by Piet Hein Eek, Studioilse, Lindsey Adelman, Michael Anastassiades, Roll & Hill, Matthew Hilton and others. “Check it out and check back frequently”, states The Future Perfect.
Piet Hein Eek (Holland, 1967) is an industrial designer who lives and works in Geldrop, Netherlands. He graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven and opened his own design studio in 1992. Eek is best known for his sustainable furniture designs using wood, iron and steel, and also designs accessories and lights. His work has been sold in galleries worldwide and exhibited in several museums including the Groninger Museum, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Ilse Crawford is a designer, academic and creative director with a simple mission to put human needs and desires at the centre of all that she does. As founder of Studioilse, together with her multi-disciplinary, London-based team, she brings her philosophy to life. This means creating environments where humans feel comfortable; public spaces that make people feel at home and homes that are habitable and make sense for the people who live in them. It means designing furniture and products that support and enhance human behaviour and actions in everyday life. It means restoring the human balance in brands and businesses that have lost their way. As founder of the department of Man and Wellbeing at the Design Academy Eindhoven, her mission extends to nurturing a new generation of students to always question why and how their work improves the reality of life.
The Future Perfect was born from a desire to create a showcase for exceptional decorative arts and design.
In September of 2003, amidst a gathering of friends and enthusiasts, founder David Alhadeff opened the original store in Brooklyn with a party celebrating the burgeoning local design community. From those modest beginnings, The Future Perfect embarked on a path of steady growth and broadening horizons.
Though still involved with the Brooklyn design scene, The Future Perfect has moved on from its Williamsburg roots, becoming a platform for design from around the world at its two locations in Manhattan and San Francisco.
“We are proud to feature many unique and special edition objects and furnishings from a diverse group of distinguished designers. Some work is by established figures in the design world while other pieces are by emerging talents. Taken together, they present a rich and compelling tapestry of dazzling possibility”, states the design company.
