STEPHEN BURKS

Stephen Burks is one of the known American industrial designers in his generation. He sees the design as an expression of a historical and cultural identity. In order to demonstrate this philosophy he collaborated with Roche-Bobois on the Traveller collection, a pair of armchairs that symbolize the transatlantic character of the partnership. While sharing some features, the American and European versions are different in ways that mirror the different history and traditions of furniture in each continent.
