Jo Kressin's journey began as an apprentice to a cabinetmaker in NRW Germany. It was there that he developed his strong passion for clean and functional design. After studying design and during the many years of running a visual communication company, Kressin discovered a quiet and minimalist approach to the environment and developed his sense for simple design.
With a move to the County in 2017, he started to work with wood, particularly the iconic 2×4. His block art reliefs and furniture objects – inspired by both Canadian home building and his home country’s Bauhaus train of thought – transfer this standard and raw material into new visual dimensions and conceptual ideas.
