About MickusProjects

Sales 96
On Etsy since 2011

A broad agenda for what we think design can do today.

Mickus Projects is a furniture design studio founded in 2006 in Brooklyn by Ben K. Mickus, and currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our products harness the sensory experience created by the interplay between unique materials. Our passion is craftsmanship enhanced by digital technology.

The studio’s design process is set up around a Venn diagram of research, collaboration, and experimental design. We begin each project with a deep investigation into materials and form, and develop designs in collaboration with specialists and local craftsmen.

Sustainability and new fabrication techniques are inherent in the Mickus Projects M.O. We search for clever ways to minimize the environmental impact of our products by calling attention to a sophisticated logic and intrinsic beauty.

Mickus Projects creates objects whose details mix function and flirtation. Our look-at-me attitude of form-making is imbued with a broad agenda for what we think design can do today. Once we have your attention, prepare for an experience.

Welcome to Mickus Projects! By purchasing a product here, you are investing in sophisticated, sustainable design. Each Mickus Projects piece is assembled by hand, from locally sourced and locally fabricated materials. We incorporate digital techniques into every step of the design and production process, but our production runs are intentionally limited. Each piece is numbered and signed with a date of completion on a Mickus Projects label of authenticity, found on the underside of the piece. Your feedback is always appreciated, so if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us.
