Mike Korsak designs and builds studio furniture with creativity and traditional craftsmanship. His furniture is built primarily on commission, and his original designs rely on material, detail, composition, scale, and proportion to achieve a sense of elegance and individuality.
Mike’s reverence for all things wood was nurtured at an early age by his grandfather, a hobbyist woodworker and carpenter. Throughout high school, college and beyond, he explored wood as a building material through woodworking, studying Wood Products at The Pennsylvania State University, working as a timber framer and timber frame designer. In 2005, Mike and his future wife, Jen, moved to New England, an area with a rich tradition as one of the centers of studio furniture making. Mike had the good fortune to work with one celebrated maker, which was a catalyst for the type of finely detailed work he currently produces.
