Hi there, Ken!

Ken Dunard designs some pretty rad lamps.
OK, so he makes furniture too, but I really want one of his lamps.
Plus we were roommates way back so I kind of HAVE to have one, right?

Let's take a look!

3. Who are your favorite artists?

No real favorite artist, but for product designers and architects I admire Alberto Meda,

Ingo Maurer and his team, the Bouroullec brothers, and Renzo Piano

4. What's the best advice you ever received about your career choice?
