Adin Mumma was born in the United States in 1981 and spent the early part of his life growing up in Taiwan. As the son of a shoemaker, he spent much time in footwear factories and at the age of 17 designed and assembled his first shoe. In 2005 Adin received a Bachelors of Science in Industrial Design from the University of Arts in Philadelphia where he was awarded the Mary Louise Beitzel and Florence Whistler Fish Award for student excellence. He has also studied at the Istituto Europeo Di Design program in Milan. In 2004, his collaboration on a chair design won the Future Furniture Competition from Interior Design magazine in New York. Since graduation, Adin joined Umbra, first in Canada and then in China as an industrial designer and overseas coordinator. He continues to contribute designs and has received awards from both ID magazine and HOW's magazine. Adin's work has been expressed as being whimsical and minimalistic while still upholding a utilitarian approach. Subtle details are often magnified and celebrated that otherwise would be unnoticed. Adin is often inspired by everyday objects unrelated to design. Also inspired by Asian and Western perceptions of nature and surrounding objects, Adin says the absence of design allows for freedom of interpretation.

I absolutely love this chess set.. it is both beautiful and funny and still it's clear as day which pieces are which. The only "downside" is that there's no box for the pieces.. but I'm making one out of walnut and maple as well ^_^ so this only creates a creative opportunity . Still in the design process now.. I'll let you guys know when I got it :) Read more
