Chen Chen & Kai Williams’ Materiality

The New York-based studio, founded in 2011, by the artistic duo Chen Chen and Kai Williams continues to push the boundaries of design by constantly developing minimalist product designs, with a polished approach and dedication to the use of high quality materials such as marble and steel.  They believe in simple processes where the materials automatically create their elaborated forms. The result is raw, bold and practical, between a piece of art and a functional object.
