About the Artist
Alessandro & Maria is the studio of designer/maker Alexander Lohn. Designing and building custom wooden furniture and goods for the home and sacred spaces. Alexander has a background in architecture and time as a Franciscan Friar. He hopes these are both reflected in a way that brings beauty and dignity to his handcrafted pieces.
Once upon a time almost everything we used was made by a person. Most likely a neighbor we would have known and interacted with. Today most things are mass produced in cheap fashion, and put together in undignified work by anonymous hands. I hope that this handmade work can bring life, sacredness, dignity, and joy into the mundane moments of peoples' lives. These mundane moments are the stuff of life, our beds, tables, chairs, and functional objects. Material, intentionality, spirituality, dignity, craft.
