Cerca Trova Design
It is well known that the jockey can decide a race. With that in mind, Matthew Shively, at the helm (or shall we say holding the reigns) of Cerca Trova Design, is a safe bet. Matthhew has already had successful careers in the underground record business (where he founded Subversion Records) and in managing thoroughbred horse farms in Kentucky. He now takes his creative vision and passion for design to a new level in Cerca Trova Design. Cerca Trova's work is rich on so many levels; here are a few:
- A refreshing mix of materials and placement in new contexts: Acrylic, reclaimed wood, steel, glass and felt.....among other surprises.
- A nod to the the past in quality of craftsmanship (such as the joinery techniques from Kentucky horse farms) intermixed with modern industrial processes.
- An eye to great design and detail.
- A sense of playfulness with shapes and uses.
