Founded in 2005 by Zoe Coombes and David Boira, Cmmnwlth is a New York based furniture, art and design studio that’s rooted in the arts but driven by new technologies. Boira grew up with his father, a Catalan painter, before working in the office of contemporary Catalan architect, Enric Miralles. Between her Bachelor in Philosophy and History and her Masters in Architecture at Columbia University, where she met Boira, Coombes was caretaker of the Villa van Doesburg in France, home of one of the founders of De Stijl. Following graduate studies, Coombes and Boira entered the automotive design department at Art Center in Pasadena. Cmmnwlth has come out of the designers interest in the influence of culture and innovation on the environment. Each elegant product embodies Cmmnwlth’s infatuation with surroundings.
