Nicholas Tilma is a designer and artist based in Detroit, Michigan. Through experimental and traditional fabrication techniques and by mixing material languages he creates otherworldly furniture, lighting, and objects that combine references to artificial nature and science fiction to address the following questions: How will humans of the future memorialize the natural world when our references are themselves the fake versions of the real thing? How can we acknowledge our collective fear of a dystopian future, while romanticizing its aesthetic?More About Artist
