I wish business owners in San Francisco would allow local designers to go this far. Of coarse this place obviously was not opened for $50,000. Which, I’m guessing is about how much the average business plan allows for.

Peter Masters of Burned Toast Design is known for his elegant bent-wood and curved-acrylic tables and chairs, but the furniture designer can be big, bold and public, if required.

When making and designing furniture, Masters plays with a large variety of materials, methods and technologies. Laminating plywood, casting resins and metals, fabricating plastics and upholstery are all familiar to Masters, as are using a machine created for violin manufacture or hand-crafting custom pieces from sustainable materials. – Tuija Seipell
