affordable. economical. enduring.
sam isn’t another modular house bauble for the well-heeled. sam revives the original spirit of modernism – using the technology of the times to better our lives. A century ago, a group of European architects recognized the possibility of integrating mass production with traditional craft as a means of providing well-designed homes and furnishings to the working class. The architectural movement they pioneered – modernism – became synonymous with hip style, yet the design-for-everybody altruism was largely abandoned.
Which brings us to 2010, where a simple plywood chair retails north of $625 in tony stores with names suggesting their products are within anyone’s grasp.
