Matthew graduated from Cranbrook Academy of Art with a Masters in 3D Design, where he was a Knoll scholar. Since then, his work has been shown at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC, and NeoCon in Chicago, and has won awards including an ICFF Studio Award, ICFF Editor’s Choice Award, and Red Dot Design Award: Best of the Best. His work has also been featured in numerous publications including Fast Company, Dwell, Surface, and Interior Design, and was a finalist for best of the year from Interior Design. He practices design at his studio, McCarty Quinn, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With a background in fine arts and an education in design, Matthew has found the perfect expression of both in industrial design. Finding inspiration everywhere and constantly questioning and challenging why the things around us are designed the way they are. 'Bringing form to objects that improve our relationship with the world around us is what I am most passionate about. When done well, the results are useful and delight the senses. I strive to design products whose simple geometry expresses its essential purpose. Outside of design, I am an avid runner, cook, beer-lover, and Formula 1 car racing fan.' "Quiet is better than loud.” - Dieter Rams
