Phase Design is The NWBLK

In one of our first product sourcing meetings, Philip Wood pulled an image of this brilliant little stool with a wire frame. The simplicity of the piece was subversive, and it stayed on the wish list for some time. As we reviewed the catalogue, our intrigue grew, and our wish list expanded.

The NWBLK presents a small collection of Phase Design product in our San Francisco gallery, and the entire catalogue is for purchase through our website.

Phase Design was founded in Los Angeles in 2000 by self-taught designer Reza Feiz in his belief that “strength (exists) in simplicity”. The designs employ solid woods, metal, and fiberglass in finishes to realize his simple, yet dynamic furniture, lighting and tabletop designs. With all of Reza’s creations, he seeks to balance delicate physicality and practical functionality. He has shown his work worldwide gaining international attention, and has been acquired by some highly discriminating clients ranging from Kiehl’s to Tom Ford. Reza has been featured in a long list of publications, starting with Surface Magazine where Reza was named a “tag team” member – one of a group of select young designers who represent the leading edge of discovery in design. Los Angeles Magazine named Feiz as one of the city’s hottest designers in its July 2006 issue, Flaunt magazine dubbed Reza a ‘Style Pioneer’ and more recently Fabrik magazine named Reza as ‘LA designer who influences world design.’

Reza continually strives to capture the modernist tenets of proportion and clarity in his work and draws upon both California and the greater global community of design for inspiration. He is influenced by the work of modernist architects like Pierre Koenig, Richard Neutra and John Lautner, yet he imbues his work with a 21st century edge, making it relevant to the constantly evolving contemporary environment.

All of the Phase Design collection is availble through the NWBLK in a variety of sizes and finishes
