Have you ever heard about the “mathematical driven craftsman”? I had never heard the term before but after speaking with the founder of his eponymous, Brooklyn based textile studio, I understand. And I think after hearing his story, you will understand as well.
Woven deep into the fabric of William Storms DNA lies an almost primal desire to create from instinct. To weave a story into the work he crafts and looming large within the narrative is a strong desire to make something never before seen and at a time when there is a premium placed on unique, original, handmade work, William Storms is someone you should know.

Side note. I do love that hand-made artistry has found its way back into design. I believe craftsmanship matters again. For a while, it was lost due to the proliferation of massed produced, cheaper product from destinations near and far. Craftsmanship matters because i don’t care for cookie-cutter and I think most designers and certainly clients feel the same way. It’s a challenge finding creative artisans and that is one of the reasons why I actively seek them out. And you are going to hear William’s story, right after this.
Thank you, William. Loved our chat, love the work. Thank you for making the time to speak with me. Thank you to my partners and sponsors ThermaSol, Moya Living and Design Hardware for your partnership and support.And, thank you for taking the time out of your day to listen to the show.
