The Sixagon design was conceived in the same fashion as all of our products. Vincent and I have a very organic and collaborative design process. We typically decide on products to add to our collection that we have a significant need for in our own homes. From there we begin our ever-changing and evolving design process. When did you first release the piece?The Sixagon was one of our first designs. We launched it with our first collection in 2009.Has your design philosophy changed much over the years?Our perspective hasn't changed much since we began; however, we first started Misewell out of love for designing and creating products that will last for ages. What we didn't realize was how much we'd enjoy the interaction between us and the people that own our furniture. We love seeing how and where people are using our furniture. We have so much to learn from them. We also never anticipated the amount of joy we find in working alongside the talented craftspeople that manufacture our furniture.
