This collaborative product between Studio KMD and Philadelphia-based retail brand Free People blends floral patterns with the natural beauty of spalted maple. Each piece is manufactured in our shop with our custom resin-casting technique. These boards are available on the Free People website.
This serving board was inspired by the 2015 discovery of the 15th tessellating pentagon. It's available in maple or black walnut, precisely milled and pressed with a gleaming copper rivet.
This limited run of iPhone docks was produced with design input from Free People. It featured a fully reclaimed-wood construction with a resin inlay design.
We worked with Free People to develop this unique customization of Klean Kanteen water bottles for their "FP Movement" product line. Strong sales have since led to the production of a variety of additional designs on both stainless steel and enameled bottles. Available online at FreePeople.com.
We create these resin-inlaid tub boards using live-edge lumber in a variety of species including cedar, walnut, holly and box elder. Each unique board is photographed individually to give users the opportunity to hand-select the piece that speaks to them.
