Custom Furniture & Environmentally Responsible Design

Bill More is a designer and craftsman with over a decade of experience in furniture design and product development. Bill is a self-taught furniture maker and welder and has built hundreds of pieces by hand, each one unique and most of them custom. His work has been displayed in art shows (such as the American Craft Council, Bellevue Arts Festival and Sausalito Art Festival), as well as art galleries throughout the country. Frequently featured in such publications as Oregon Home Magazine, Area of Design, Dwell, the San Francisco Chronicle and Artisan N.W. magazine.

Bill started his design career while studying architecture at Brooklyn, New York's Pratt Institute ('93-'95) and the Boston Architectural Center in Boston, Massachusetts ('98-'99).

After 40 years, I was just recently diagnosed with a genetic connective tissue disorder known as Ehler's Danlos Syndrome (EDS) which has unfortunately halted my ability to fabricate furniture. Although, I am still an active designer who is open to art and product design inquiries of all kinds.

  "My passion for nature fuels my design process, as does the industrial train yard next to my shop, which inspires my daily fabrication process. While my construction process is often chaotic and dirty, the end goal offers a clean and elegant balance of complimentary materials. I often obsess over these material relationships, and am constantly searching for new materials and methods. As in all of nature's great forms, architecture and design share a language of balance between their parts.    My shop creates little waste, and I am conscious of my environmental impact. I prefer using steel as my key ingredient since a large majority of its content comes from recycled material. I also use sustainably harvested and locally salvaged wood as much as possible, including walnut and madrone which are abundant in Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley. I build my pieces with passion, sweat, care, and the intention that each becomes the focal point of a room for generations."
