So let's fill it with beautiful objects. Samuel Pawlak is the founder of Livesay Ether, a Lancaster City, Pennsylvania, based design studio. The studio’s underlying aesthetic is defined by a dark, elegant, surrealist vision. This vision is guided by a design process predicated on creating and documenting uncommon or unique standalone forms, bodies, and artifacts and translating them into functional pieces through the most modern technological methods available. These simple yet defining characterizations of Pawlak’s method and style stems from his interest in all that is still unknown or unfound, and how it may be expressed and preserved through the mediums of art and design.
Though known namely for furniture, Livesay Ether Studios also releases smaller concept projects as a means of personal exploration, discovery, and to further refine the studio’s style. The most recent project, “Line in the Sky” will be presented in full later this June, 2020. Project elements are also posted regularly on the studio’s Instagram page, @livesay_ether.
