Keith Moore has been design­ing and build­ing uniquely modern, fun, and prac­ti­cal furni­ture, light­ing, and clocks for nearly 20 years.

Keith’s back­ground in graphic design informs his style in the inter­play of bold color, shapes, and patterns. His work was ignited while attend­ing Colorado State Univer­sity by the discov­ery of the Italian Memphis Design Group and the work of Ettore Sottsass Jr., Matheo Thun, Michele de Lucchi and others. Their exper­i­ments in color and form, and the mix of high and low mate­ri­als inspired him. In addi­tion to Memphis, his influ­ences range from Marc Newson and Maya Linn, to Louise Nevel­son, Syd Mead, Donald Judd and Peter Gabriel.

Since he started, his designs have evolved from his orig­i­nal influ­ences into styl­ized creations that have a playful nature to them. This is achieved by embrac­ing tech­nol­ogy and mixing mate­ri­als such as vinyl, lami­nate, glass, MDF, wood, 3D printed compo­nents, and various metals to realize the final form. Keith is at his best when he’s solving prob­lems for a chal­leng­ing design. He doesn’t consider himself a wood­worker, but rather a designer who might use wood as a start­ing point. He is inter­ested in all the possi­bil­i­ties of mate­r­ial and form with the goal to create objects of lasting design and regard for sustainability.

Working as an inde­pen­dent artist and maker for over 20 years, Keith has main­tained a success­ful design busi­ness, formerly Pilot Design, now known as Keith Moore Design. He has designed, made, sold, and shipped over 750 hand­made prod­ucts nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally includ­ing clocks, furni­ture, and light­ing. He has garnered a five star satis­fac­tion rating from 225 buyers and nearly 4000 favorites on Etsy. His work has appeared on HGTV, and in Dwell, Fast Company and Midwest Home maga­zines, as well as numer­ous design blogs includ­ing Design Milk.
