Linn Designs

Lio + Linn are a Japanese artisan design duo handcrafting metal-art by Masumi Hayashi and woodwork by Ryu Iida in their Brooklyn-based studio.

As artists, designers and craftsman, they share over 10 years experience in the art of metalwork and woodwork. They honor the process of “thinking with their hands” and embrace fine detail found in art, craft and design. They work in unison, creating metal and woodwork merged into jewelry, objects and furniture designs that engage the spirit of personal adventure. Through an exchange of ideas, they experiment with organically inspired materials to fashion fresh forms and evoke curiosity.
