Peter Mann is a designer, fabricator, educator and furniture maker with a lifelong involvement in the materiality of objects and the processes of furniture making. Far from being just prosaic technical details, connections and joinery tell the story of how one material speaks to another, how one shape flows into the next – extending of course to the most critical interaction between the object and the human form. Each Peter Mann object is hand made in the USA and signed by its maker. Peter has always made things – what makes the practice of furniture design so compelling for him is the very intimate interface between object and the human body, sense of touch, sight, smell, weight, temperature, structure; how the piece touches the end user. He creates heirloom quality, subtle + substantial modern furniture. His materials base is discreet and discerning focusing on rich solid natural woods + waxed raw metals and bronze.
