Tom Gunkelman and Andrew Flesher are the creative force behind Minneapolis interior design firm Gunkelman Flesher. They combine clean and functional designs with a bit of the unexpected to create commercial and residential spaces that appear to have evolved with the client. As their website says "We believe that good design is timeless in both function and nature." Read Andrew Flesher's HGTV article "6 Ways to Jazz Up Your Home" here.
Karim Rashid is a brilliant designer, and I'm proud to say grew up (partly) in Canada and went to the same university I did (Carleton, here in Ottawa). He lives in a space EXACTLY as you would imagine - filled with vibrant colours, bold patterns and alot of white. See for yourself.
Christopher Coleman designs energetic, fresh, family friendly spaces. He mixes textures and shapes and colour to achieve a graphic sensibility that has a sense of humour. I love the newspaper panels in the office and the great display of colourful glass. The use of positive and negative is so striking in his work.
"THE SEVEN DEITIES
In a diaphonous light, eight dogs rest on seven magnificent chairs. With their aristocratic poise and gentle countenance, they reveal a sublime personality touched by the hand of God."
