NACHSHON is an independent furniture design studio from Haifa, Israel, which also includes a manufacturing workshop. We aim to design aesthetic and precise furniture, while implementing the understanding of materials, technics and the human needs. We aspire to create furniture that last for generations and are part of a long-life cycle. Simultaneously, they can fit in any scenario and in different atmospheres. We balance between classic international design to our contemporary and local point of view, as well as combining traditional materials with new technics and technologies. Thus, every detail in our work is important and gets full attention. We give the utmost attention to the materials which we work with and to its natural characterization. Every furniture in our collection holds a story – from the first inspiration through production and the complete creation.
Tomer Nachshon is an Israeli architect and designer, and currently the leading founder of the Haifa-based studio. Tomer founded the studio in his family workshop in Haifa, right after his studies. While growing up he absorbed there the love and understanding of materials and technics which are applied today on the different products. The combination of architectural knowledge and the physical work enables constant iterations between different scales and points of view. A strong connection to the materials we use and the actual piece is created by being a part of the whole process – thus creating understanding that is beyond the sketchbook alone.
