Maker's Story Five Ply Design Seattle, Washington Founded in 2006
As a child Peter Benarcik was usually found in two places: helping his mom at a floral shop designing bouquets, or woodworking with his Dad. These creative environments were the beginnings of his design education. Today, Peter is an award winning multi-discipline designer who is driven by function and solving existing problems in a new way. He is not trying to reinvent the wheel rather he is trying to look at the wheel a little differently. Each piece is thoughtfully handmade in the Seattle studio, and can be found in homes and museums throughout the USA.
