Palo is a humble artisan who applies old world techniques to design contemporary interiors that will give any home a special air of sophistication. We’ve showcased his work before, including a men’s only chest [6] that has a curious secret hiding spot, and his signature butterfly joinery [7] used to seal natural splits in the timber he harvests to build tables, cabinets, benches, and other unique pieces.

A devoted steward of the environment, Palo also enjoys experimenting with a range of materials. His designs include such detailing as brass and leather finishings, all of which add to a certain mystique that we’ve never been able to place over the years. It’s been some time since BKLYN Designs [8] has run, so it’s particularly exciting that we get to see Palo again; he is bound to have some earth-friendly goodness up his sleeve.
