Lauded designers share their California Mood.
“The San Francisco pioneering spirit caught up with me as soon as I arrived in the Bay Area 20 years ago. People work on ideas here; it’s not just a job, there is a bigger motivation driving us. A current design project, Canopy is an inspiring [co-working] space in every way, from natural light to both open, collaborative spaces and private, focused areas. The inspiration for me was to create a design bridge between contemporary furniture that supports modern ways of working, mixed with local classics such as Heath tiles, August Smart Locks and Juicero, and to add pioneers such as Joe Colombo, Stilnovo, Alexander Girard, Chadwick and Eames. All this in a boutique space, with a neighborhood feel, to continue to work on our California dreams.” canopy.space.
