Alice Tacheny (b. 1975) was born and raised in St Paul, Minnesota. Trained as a woodworker, she has been building and designing furniture for the past 17 years. In 2012 Alice began work on her own collection of furniture and objects, merging functional concepts with sculptural forms. Alice’s discipline is influenced both by a lifelong love of craft and a deep connection to the objects she designs and creates. Her inspiration derives from experimentation with raw materials and converging forms, and results in designs that embody simplicity and an understated grace. She strives to create pieces with meaning and purpose and to integrate these honest values into her work.
