Architecturally inspired, minimally designed.

Kahen Design is a Brooklyn-based practice established by Ryan Kahen. Ryan (M.Arch, B.S. Arch) studied architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, informing the work of Kahen Design.

Utilizing fundamental building materials, Ryan produces handcrafted objects and furniture exploring scale, form, and process. Kahen Design creates tools for everyday life that are minimal and functional. These products are objects for both daily use and display within the home, pairing with the user’s individual aesthetic and rituals. While Ryan works within a range of materials, his expertise lies in woodworking and cast concrete.

All pieces are made in Brooklyn, NY using modern manufacturing and traditional craft—a hybrid of digital and analog.
