m.a.d. Furniture Design was established in 2010 by Matt Cole and Dan Given. Having worked for over 10 years in all facets of furniture design and production around Asia, Matt and Dan set up m.a.d. with the quest to carve their own path in the world of furniture and design.
m.a.d. Furniture Design collaborates with Chicago-based Mark Daniel of Slate Design to design and develop useful, affordable and desirable furniture for the modern urban dweller.
Mark's architectural background gave him the insight to appreciate what goes into a space defines it as much as the walls that enclose it. This deep appreciation of objects and the importance of maintaining design integrity from initial sketch to final manufacturing are sensitivities that Mark and the m.a.d. team work into each collection.
m.a.d. operations are based in Asia and include the ‘m.a.d. lab’™ product development and testing facility combined with a stand alone product assembly plant.
