Biography

The furniture designed by RO/LU, a Minneapolis-based firm, looks purposefully unfinished. Established as a landscape design studio in 2003, RO/LU attempts to incorporate principles of outdoor architecture into its indoor furniture. Made from plywood and particle board, the design of RO/LU’s modular chairs share more with Rudolph Schindler houses than they do most home furnishings. Almost a decade since its founding, the firm now consists of three members: Matt Olson, Mike Brady, and Nathan Coutts. In addition to furniture design, RO/LU’s work extends to urban planning and public art.
