Stanley Ruiz | Design

Stanley Ruiz works in Brooklyn, New York. Since 2001 he has specialized in home furnishings and products, producing designs for large retailers throughout the world. His work balances a contemporary aesthetic afforded by new technologies and a raw feel derived from a deep interest and devotion to traditional handcrafts.

Ruiz’s “Raw” collection highlights the natural beauty of wood. The two products, clock and mirror, are both produced through CNC-milling and finished with hand cut leather. Here, Ruiz combines three important elements of his design – craft, nature, and technology. The clock, viewed above, is easily one of my favorite designs of 2009. Its simple, honest, functional, and devoid of superfluous embellishment.
