ANDRÁS GIPP, Designer/Craftsman
Born in Hungary, András spent his childhood watching his father and grandfather sculpt with stone, and craft everything from beds to bowls with their hands. He fell in love with wood in the Bakony forest where he ran wild as a child, marveling at the warmth of this living medium. András later studied fine art woodworking and instrument making in Hungary and Vienna before venturing to New York City. After building sailboats, bass guitars and rebuilding hundreds of pianos for New York's elite musicians, András debuts his first line of furniture, reflecting his passion and precision for his craft.
