The projects of Steven Banken are based on a research in origin and characteristics from different materials. This research is visible in his project Tannic Acid, a project about the natural transition between red iron oxide and tannic acid.
His approach results in a clear design with an eye for innovation, construction and finish. The projects are designed and produced in his studio: from the first sketch to the final product.
Steven Banken is fascinated by the material wood, craftsmanship and its history. His great appreciation for industrial and artisanal techniques is visible in construction and detail.
