IANNONE DESIGN was founded by MICHAEL IANNONE and  is a Philadelphia based design and build firm dedicated to the creation of eco-friendly contemporary furniture.

MICHAEL IANNONE graduated from Rowan University in 2000 with a BFA in Studio Art. He has been designing and building furniture for over 6 years, and has worked for two years as a luthier crafting custom solid body electric guitars.

Each of the pieces which form part of the sustainiably designed collection has a signature graphic inlay either in a contrast grain or contract wood and finish. All the furniture pieces are constructed in FSC certified plywood. The Dandelion sideboard feature a graphic cut out of white gloss laminate and  kirei doors.

The original Signature 2.0 Dandelion design now comes in a six-drawer dresser. Iannone has expanded the range to include other nature based designs such as hummingbirds, silver birch trees, and  wild flowers.  Its highly reconiseable style features  a decorative graphic on a sleek, minimal storage unit. The kirei doors are made from the reclaimed stalks of the sorghum plant and made using a formaldehyde-free adhesive. The cabinet is constructed of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sustainable plywood also made with formaldehyde-free adhesives. The gloss white laminate is Greenguard certified assuring that it conforms to healthy indoor air standards. All the cabinets in his collection come with premium soft closing doors, and stainless steel legs.

There is a  freshness and a lightness of touch to Iannone’s work that  represents so well the new atmosphere of simplicity and connectedness with our natural world that we are all searching for….a definite eco icon in the making…
