Nicholas Tilma :
The design of objects is evocative of a culture. My own personal culture of observation and experimentation is expressed in my work.
Nicholas Tilma is a furniture, lighting, and object designer based in Detroit, MI. His practice focuses on re-contextualizing found shapes, materials, and textures by combining them into new functional domestic objects. He designs through a process of experimentation with materials and hand production methods. The resulting objects have a strong formal character and clear use of materials.
NEXT:SPACE is a retail platform for Nicholas Tilma, helping develop Nicholas Tilma products for the Detroit and international markets.
