The 12 strong\, LA Box Collective\, is a newly formed group of Los Angeles-based professional furniture designers and makers committed to environmentally-conscious design and production.  While working in various modern styles\, the individual furniture makers t hat make up BoxCo are collectively devoted to fine craftsmanship\, sound d esign\, and the use of long-lasting\, reclaimed\, and other sustainable ma terials. The group has come together to showcase what Los Angeles has to o ffer in the way of beautiful design\, crafted locally and sustainably\, an d ultimately to encourage buyers to look for the “Made in Southern Califor nia” stamp.  The members of the collective are Cliff Spencer Furniture\, S idecar Furniture\, caseandgrain\, whyrHymer\, Robert Apodaca\, Stranger Fu rniture\, Edward Pine Stevens\, Riiska Design\, and Topher Paterno.  < br />
Sustainability is not a new idea but the imperative to live a sustainable life is. We are radically rewinding our approach to a time when value was placed on fine craftsmanship\, long-lasting materials and sound design. Looking forward\, we value the precious materials that our society wastes.
