a human,

Mike Newins (he/they) is an American designer based in North Carolina. Newins is a self taught craftsperson and interdisciplinary designer making instinctual and precise furniture, objects and spaces that live between the soft and the severe.

Newins is heavily influenced by artists of the Light and Space Movement, 2000's punk DIY culture, neo-noir science fiction movies and an enthusiasm for manufacturing processes. Gestural minimalism and utilitarian craft are the primary languages of the studio.

Newins loves podcasts, reading, dogs and large empty rooms.
