Brian Thoreen is an American designer and artist who lives and works between Los Angeles, Mexico City and Paris. He creates functional and nonfunctional works which gather their ethos from the integral nature of the materials within the application.
Focusing on material, form and process his works find routes to an unexpected existence. Being mostly self thought and having grown up working construction, metal fabrication and art install/fabrication his experience in these fields has lead him to a place with a diverse view of dimensional space and material interactions.
After relocating his primary studio and residence to Mexico City, Thoreen has participated in many collaborations. These connections have lead to co-founding the nomadic gallery MASA and the experimental glass studio Vissio. These partnerships have expanded the capacity for experimentation and discovery within the studio, Mexico and the fields of art and design.
