Cool and compact, the Ledge is a multi-use, wall-mounted unit that can serve as a writing desk or media center. Cord concealment is at the core of the design, as was its use of environmentally conscious materials. Made from oil-rubbed, FSC-certified solid walnut or painted formaldehyde-free MDF. Standard features: pullout shelf-work station, cord-power strip storage, drawer with soft close mechanism, pencil tray and mounting hardware. Darin Montgomery, a metalworker and sculptor, founded UrbanCase in Seattle in 2002. He collaborated with Trey Jones on this new entry, which debuted to critical fanfare in 2010.
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.
