Designer and university professor (San Francisco State University) Martin Linder aspires to create products that, even in the smallest ways, “increase pleasure and reduce human suffering.”

The elegant lines and fine materials of Florabella Lounge Seating and Tables exhibit his desire to furnish healthcare environments with designs that are based on rigorous research methodologies and also satisfy human needs for comfort and style.

Linder's wide-ranging list of interests and influences include jungle treks, Papua New Guinea tribal artifacts, Constantin Brancusi's innovative spirit, finely crafted guitars, the compelling writings of Octavia Butler, Neil Young's propensity for endless musical creations, the Williamsburg Bridge, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, and the human form.
