About the Maker

Knauf and Brown is D Calen Knauf and Conrad Brown, based in Vancouver, Canada. Many years of friendship have lead to the partnership they form now: The pair met through skateboarding in 2001 and have been exchanging opinions on shapes, colours, and textures ever since. The rarity of their collaboration shows when discussing the final results of a project–in most cases it is impossible to point out which element of a design came from which mind. Knauf and Brown have an unnatural obsession with studying the spaces and objects that surround life. Both partners bring strong aesthetic experience from image-based practices, Calen coming from a graphic design background, and Conrad working in photography. They place a huge importance on knowing how to balance practicality with beauty, and when to prioritize one over the other. For the duo, the relationship between function and form is complex and ever changing. Their studio was formed three years into a four year bachelor degree in industrial design. The pair’s Heavystock shelving, designed during their third year of school, was noticed by designer Kenyon Yeh, and is now manufactured by his brand, Esaila, after its debut at Maison et Objet in September of 2013. Their work and interviews have been featured online and in print, including Frame, RUM, and Dwell magazines.
