MKS design is a modern furniture and housewares design firm established in 1998. It has produced distinctive and elegant furniture including chairs, stools, couches, configurable theater seating, modular storage, tables large and small, sideboards and bars, as well as an ever-evolving line of housewares—both production and one-off—coasters, trivets, tableware, serving utensils, and professional kitchen cutlery.
The mission of MKS Design is to create furnishings that embody a design ethic focused on our emotional experience of the things which surround us, while silently supported by a robust and rigorous technical and intellectual backbone.
Our work is meant to be authentic in the sense of being genuine and original, courageous, and proud yet not self-conscious. We aim to create beauty through an honest mix of fact, function, wit, and whimsy, and the maintenance of an uncompromising and meticulous attention to detail. The work is predominately, but not exclusively in metal, and emphasis is on original design.
