MATERIAL. PROCESS. TRANSFORMATION.
Casey McCafferty, principal of CBM Design Group, exercises a respect for material and traditional technique in each piece he creates. Working with found objects and luxe slabs, applying both Old World craft and unorthodox experimentation, and mixing rugged materials with sleek metals and glass, Casey seeks the intersections where tactility, substance, and heft meet concept and metaphor. A recent transplant from Brooklyn, Casey creates work that reflects his natural surroundings, while exploring the boundaries between craftsmanship, art, and technique.
The Bone Collection was conceived on the notion of backless furniture. The idea, although extreme, was that even the inside of an upholstered piece should be appreciated. We imagined an upholstered piece with the fabric removed, and these beautiful bones that existed underneath. Most fabricators would consider this a waste of material. However, we believe that these details, even if not seen, make the piece special. So we revealed them in our Bone Collection.
