It's a Snap if you're looking for a fab bedside side table! Here's a clean wall-mounted niche for your close-at-hand needs–a few books, a table lamp, compact electronics, a glass of water (or a hot toddy.) Snap is made from easy-upkeep Corian, with a plywood back. Another in a line of unobtrusively elegant furnishings from Urbancase's Darin Montgomery, who devised Snap along with fellow Seattle designer Trey Jones, who heads his own eponymous studio.
Darin Montgomery got his inauspicious start as a designer at about age 10, when he constructed a wineglass rack out of scrap wood from the family garage. He didn’t realize he needed to clamp the pieces together while the glue dried and so it fell apart when his mom picked it up. “It was known as ‘Frankenrack’ from then on,” he says.
Today, there’s nothing in the least bit scary about the luxuriously minimal furnishings from Urbancase, Darin’s Seattle-based firm. Starting out as a sculptor, he began to build custom furniture on a one-off basis. Working with partners Rachel Illingworth, Trey Jones and Brian Beck, the Urbancase portfolio has come to include furniture, lighting, textiles, tabletop objects and even custom interiors. Darin illustrates his pared-back philosophy with each elegantly reductive element.
