What is your name?

Maček Furniture Company, the business enterprise of craftsman Mark Maček.

 

Who are you?

A design studio offering custom fabrication of wood and veneer furniture, based in Austin, Texas.  All commissions are made-to-order, unique, signed and dated.

Can you describe your work briefly?

Natural and modern, raw and polished, comfortable and unexpected, Maček Furniture finds joy in the constant feedback between designing and making.  

 

How about a quote from you?

Seeking a clear visual solution to a complex problem is the greatest task for any designer, and finding that solution is the greatest thrill.

 

Do you prefer to work solo or as a team?

The nature of custom design is collaborative.  Maček Furniture thrives on discussion with our clients - architects, interior designers, collectors, churches, and public institutions.  The best designs come from the best clients.  That being said, the designer comes ready with visual intuition and improvisation during those conversations.
