Industrial designer Rob Zinn’s non-traditional approach to design led him to move from his Manhattan studio to a Northern California agricultural community where he set-up a large shop to create and produce iconic pieces such as his Viscosity and Concentric lighting that was featured on the cover of the New York Times’ House and Home magazine.

Great design and sustainable manufacturing and sales practices are integral to Blank Blank’s operations. Designs are made from interchangeable components able to be reconditioned so they may last a lifetime. They strive to use durable, natural, recycled or recyclable materials and clean manufacturing techniques and have a carbon offset purchase program.

Blankblank was invited to participate in Paris’ Design Days May, 2014. The Parisian design community embraced the work and ideology by placing them in a carefully curated collection that includes prominent design figures such as Finn Juhl and Sergio Rodrigues.
