about

ISOM is a NYC and Kansas City-based design collective.

 

As a multidisciplinary design collective, we seek out diversity in projects and clientele. Working across many disciplines and industries, we create an experience through visual and tactile methods.

We look for design challenges that demand solutions, which put our unique collaborative process to full use. Our fabrication and build management services are fully integrated into each of our projects. From concept through production, we strive to create work that maintains the purity of an idea in a highly logical and functional form. With exceptional aesthetic sensibilities and great dedication and passion towards our craft, we provide relevant, yet timeless designs with an uncompromising level of authenticity, quality and attention to detail.

Chris began his career in 1994, by launching a high-end integrated media systems company where he worked on hundreds of residential projects throughout the United States. Through his work in home media systems, Chris gained vast technical knowledge and an in-depth understanding of construction processes and detailing. He now puts that experience to use in build management, where he oversees all disciplines needed to successfully implement design solutions in both commercial and residential new-build and renovation projects.

Matthew began work as a furniture designer in 1997, and shortly thereafter relocated from Kansas City to his current home of New York City. His bespoke commissions have appeared in many luxury residential and commercial spaces throughout North America.
