DUNN: a contemporary interpretation of a mid-century modern aesthetic
10/07/2017 - DUNN is a small, Rhode Island based design and manufacturing firm, born in 2010 from designer Asher Rodriquez-Dunn's exploration into the intersection between nature, craft, and the spirit of adventure. DUNN work is a contemporary interpretation of a mid-century modern aesthetic.

With sustainable practices and respect for materials, they build each and every product to the highest standards, ensuring they last for future generations to admire and enjoy. Here's what's new: 
 
Equinox Collection

Inspired by the biannual equilibrium of night and day, the Equinox Sconce is now available with hand rolled glass. The molten glass is poured onto a work surface, kneaded, and then rolled, rendering each sheet with a uniquely textured surface that, in keeping with the collection’s original inspiration, is reminiscent of planetary topography.  DUNN is also introducing the Equinox Pendant to this collection, available in powder coat Black Poppy finish with Charcoal glass or in powder coat Country Cream finish with Warm White glass.
 
Flute Collection

They employ the ancient technique of metal spinning to custom make the namesake piece of the Flute collection, which mimics the gentle curves of a champagne flute. Powder coat colors, plated finishes, and metallic details reference a mid-century modern aesthetic. A new linking drop rod system creates a delicate, jewelry-like effect, enhancing the minimalistic aesthetic of the piece. Available in Oil Rubbed Brass, Brushed Brass, or Brushed Nickel with un-lacquered brass or nickel details.
 
Rockport Collection

Studio DUNN introduces new work to its Rockport Collection, which debuted last year. This year at the 2017 ICFF, the firm will release the Rockport Chair, Rockport Bench, and Rockport Sawhorse Table. The collection plays with design conventions in line, proportion, and angle, referencing traditional pieces and techniques to create modern interpretations. The bold angles, thoughtfully placed through-joints, and dynamic lines of the collection inspire the modernist in each of us. Subtle brass inlays add an elevated touch of style. These pieces are made to order and can be customized to fit your dimension and finish specifications.
 
DUNN’s Classics
Earlier this year, the studio released a line of tinted finishes in Seasoned Black, Weathered Grey, and Vintage White – the TONED finish collection – adding stylistic flare to the luxurious hardwood craft synonymous with the DUNN name.  

DUNN presented a variety of pieces in these finishes at ICFF, including several of their classics like the Coventry and Kingstown Stools. True to DUNN’s ethos, the tinted finishes enhance the depth and character of the woodwork by adding the visual interest of pigmentation while still allowing the beauty of the wood’s grain and coloration to show.DUNN: a contemporary interpretation of a mid-century modern aesthetic
