Stones and crystals with the sketches - "My design practice is very materially-focused; in our studio, we have unusual stones and other natural artifacts all over the tables. These pieces regularly inspire new design directions and ideas."
CAD drawings with hand drawings - "Even though the way that we work with our manufacturers is often very hi-tech -- sending back and forth computer files of designs -- every design begins in a very analog fashion. That means doing pages and pages of hand sketches, little tiny proof-of-concept models made of matchsticks and pieces of metal, and other physical explorations."
Frames on desk - "I love the fact that my kids "grow up" with each production run of our photo frames. In the earliest designs, my son Izzy is just a baby!"
"To create a final design, we could have anywhere from 5 to 10 rounds of prototypes until we get it right. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to design, and obsess about the tiny details...I believe that these tiny details, down to the intricate design of the tabs on the back of a photo frame, show the absolute care and attention that we put into the designs." —Designer, Anna Rabinowicz, RabLabs (pictured above)
