    Zoe Coombes will speak about her experiences working in the world of contemporary furniture design.

    Zoe Coombes is the co-founder of Cmmnwlth, the studio name under which she and her partner David Boira produce furniture, art and that which lies between. Zoe received her Masters degree in Architecture from Columbia University and shortly thereafter began working at the smaller, more detailed scale of furniture. Dedicated to an investigation of contemporary tools and their intersection with craft-based processes of production, the studio has been commissioned by culture-driven clients such as Issey Miyake, Warp Records and the Museum of Modern Art, and currently designs for the American furniture label, MatterMade.
