architectural and furniture design arena, including the Chicago ‘Key to the Future’ housing competition and the New York Humanscale office design competition.
Smith has worked intensely on various large and small scale projects. These range from a 9000 sq. ft. commercial loft for a media firm to furniture and lighting pieces displayed in galleries throughout Illinois, such as I.D., Meble, and the Illinois Artisans Association.
With a concentration on custom residential work he has become recognized as a dedicated, passionate designer who pushes the limits of the ordinary.
