ABOUT THE DESIGNER:

headshot.jpg

CEDRIC MARTIN WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LANCASTER COUNTY, PA. HIS MENNONITE HERITAGE IS MANIFESTED BY HIS REVERENCE FOR TRADITION AND SUBDUED UNDERSTATED DETAILS, AS WELL AS HIS UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT IS A CATALYST FOR TRANSCENDENT METAPHYSICAL EXPERIENCES. IN LANCASTER, HE LEARNED FINE WOODWORKING AND BUILT HIS FIRST PIECES OF FURNITURE WHILE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL. AFTER GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE WITH A DEGREE IN SOCIOLOGY, CEDRIC RETURNED TO WORKING WITH WOOD IN HIS MID-TWENTIES BY CARVING UTENSILS AND BUILDING FURNITURE FOR A CAFÉ AND RECORD STORE HE WAS RUNNING IN BROOKLYN. HE THEN STUDIED AT BOTH THE CENTER FOR FURNITURE CRAFTSMANSHIP IN MAINE AND THE NORTH BENNETT STREET SCHOOL IN BOSTON BEFORE GOING TO WORK FOR A HIGH-END CUSTOM CABINET SHOP. DURING THIS TIME, CEDRIC CONSISTENTLY WORKED ON HONING HIS OWN DESIGN SKILLS AND METHODS OF PRODUCTION, CREATING COUNTLESS PROTOTYPES AND ONE-OFFS UNTIL A UNIQUE AESTHETIC BEGAN TO EMERGE FROM HIS WORK. THE RESULT IS A FURNITURE COLLECTION BORN FROM ORGANIC CREATIVE GROWTH AND FOSTERED BY HANDS-ON EXPERIMENTATION.
