Sergio Traverso is a furniture designer on the up. He first honed his skills in the wood shop of San Francisco firm Ohio Design before starting company Four/Quarter, a name referring to a hardwood measurement (4/4). With a background in industrial design, Traverso draws inspiration from sculpture and architecture (citing Alvar Aalto and Le Corbusier as inspiration). Working with oak, ash, walnut, and Douglas fir, Four/Quarter designs furniture with a fundamental simplicity. Here, a closer look at the current offering, all made to order from their workshop on San Francisco’s Treasure Island. For ordering information, contact Four/Quarter directly.
