Lagomorph Seth Deysach
Back Story: Deysach has a BFA in ceramic and metal sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and worked as a cook and bicycle mechanic before becoming a furniture designer and builder six years ago. Inspirations: Mid-century masters George Nakashima and Sam Maloof. Mission: Designing furniture to be as eco-friendly as possible (given the resources available and people’s willingness to pay for it). “If a client is paying $4,000 for a vanity, do they really want to pay twice that for sustainable materials?” he asks. On The Front Burner: A collaboration with Chicago-based Covers Unlimited on a line of green furniture made from FSC-certified wood and steel frames and upholstered with vegetable-tanned leathers and bamboo chenille. “No slipcovered sofas with pleated skirts,” promises Deysach. Available at lagomorphdesign.com. Welded recycled steel and reclaimed ash bench, $2,995.
