Located in San Francisco California, John August is an innovative furniture and product designer. As an technically accomplished craftsmen and machinist, August employs a hands-on approach to the design and engineering. Aways in pursuit of the space between art and function, his designs are beautiful and practical. Equally at home with traditional hand tools, 3D modeling software, or advanced CNC machinery, John August explores the still-point between the deep soul of the hand-made with the precision of quality mass-production. "As long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by the unfolding harmonies of geometric forms as they are applied to sculpture and design. As the idea of a circle takes on mass in the form of a sphere, a cylinder, or a tube, a physical form is realized." August's designs revel in that translation from desihn idea to production.
