Manifold Design produces beautifully handcrafted modern furniture made of locally harvested solid hardwoods. The designs are elegant, functional and intelligently conceived with flexibility and practicality in mind. Every piece can be ordered with custom dimensions.

An important goal of Manifold Design is to advance ecological considerations with high quality construction, materials and recycling: efficient use of local hardwoods rather than plywood made elsewhere; designing and producing small objects so that scrap wood is used rather than discarded; composting wood shavings and sawdust; promoting better technologies such as LED lighting; etc. This sustainable process coupled with artistry and invention yield long lasting works of art. Quality is ecological.

Rick Pereira is an industrial designer with 15 years of experience in furniture design and production. He holds a master's degree from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. While living and working for four years in Rome, Italy, he apprenticed with furniture maker Irene Ferri and was the design assistant to Kevin Walz, a New York interior, product and furniture designer.
