Founder Kurt Loubaton grew up in farm country in Wisconsin with an American blue-collar father and a multi-lingual Moroccan mother who was an artist and educated as a mathematician. It was an upbringing exposed to culture, design and making things with his hands, and mostly spent roaming the local railroad tracks and woods discovering various curios to take home and re-form with whatever resources at his disposal.
With deep roots and influence in giving new life to found objects, he inevitably founded a company that designed and built custom industrial inspired furniture and objects.
