Kurt Dexel builds beautiful, clean, and modern crafted furniture. His work is a reflection of his background in engineering, an affinity for modern aesthetics, and his dedication – as a self-taught craftsman – to the art of woodworking.
Fascinated by how things are built, Kurt was the little boy lying under the living room table trying to figure out how it was made. In the early stages of his career Kurt’s work focused on the creation of antique replicas. As his skills improved, he began to explore concepts and designs based on a more modern aesthetic. His technical skills, combined with his innate sense of design, allowed him to explore progressive ideas that introduced old-world detail and joinery to otherwise contemporary design concepts.
Today his furniture is characterized by clean and simple lines that upon closer inspection, reveal tremendous precision and innovative joinery - pieces that celebrate the traditional and the conceptual. Modern crafted furniture that is original, artistic, and functional.
