HILL DESIGN STUDIO
by Hill Studio x Carel Woodworks
“The range began with a conversation and review of traditional Romanian woodwork and craft, and how to be best showcase but modernize this theme.
Ideally we wanted to create products that could flex between a living and working environment, while featuring the craftsmanship and tradition.
I developed some of my design cues from Japanese and minimalist influences. I found these intersections of culture, craftsmanship, and flexibility to be critical and inspiring.
The end goal was to generate modern, yet subtle and rational products. The post and dowel construction was a direct relational nod to the material, forest and timber.
I found myself curious about the intersections of the same components, such as dowels, and how to build using these common, easily manufactured part.
The dowels and circles are a translation of the common spaces and uses of these products, something we can all relate to and approach.”
Hill Studio is a Baltimore-based design studio founded by Jesse Hill in 2019. Fueled by a passion for all furniture and lighting archetypes, Hill aims to develop products that bring beauty, joy, function, and betterment to the everyday.
Hill explores how the dots are connected when designing a project from a lens of his own perspectives “ I am interested in the parameters of materials, manufacturing, and user needs, filtering down to the most streamlined function.
My process is about refining the form to its cleanest and inviting expression, constructed within constraints. I always strive for simplicity, approachability, function, context, and intention.”
