Kip Rivera

Obsessively observing and analyzing the world around me to produce better forms and functions.

Passionate about optimizing the human experience while creating products that are an expression of the users personality. Furniture and home goods are a great example of the mix of functionality and personality I like to research. Problem solving is at the root of my curiosity as well as my fascination with what objects we surround ourselves with, especially in our personal spaces, and why. I want to design how can improve our objects to ultimately improve our spaces.
