About Scott Klinker
Furniture designer, artist, and educator Scott Klinker heads the graduate 3D design program at the renowned Cranbrook Academy of Art as Designer-in-Residence, where he also received his MFA in 1996. His work there builds on the Cranbrook tradition of modern design - searching for new forms to address our changing needs. In line with Cranbrook's tradition of integrating Design, Art and Craft, he believes that the best forms are not conceived in the mind, but discovered with the hands. His broad approach to form giving is driven by an interest in remixing the categories of industrial design, architecture and sculpture.
A contemporary nod to vernacular architecture, Peak is an abstracted expression of home. Designed by Scott Klinker, Peak incorporates both modern and traditional architectural language — the gabled shade is familiar and inviting while the clean lines and elegant silhouette offer a distinct sense of modernity. The duality of this design allows Peak to complement a variety of different aesthetic attitudes and integrate seamlessly into a range of landscapes, offering landscape architects a new way to express their unique visions.
