Matt Eastvold is no stranger here on plastolux, if you remember a few months ago we finished a credenza that Matt and I designed, then with his mad skills he executed the built. Since then he has added some really nice custom pieces and expanded his production.

Q: What is your background?

I grew up on a farm in southern MN and learned many trades as I was growing up.  One of my main jobs growing up was welding in my dad’s metal fab shop. In the corner of his large shop was a wood shop where he and I built furniture as a hobby, usually using inexpensive wood such as scraps or standard pine boards.  I had always had an underlying love for modern design when I was young, I really became aware of it and put it to use after moving to the Twin Cities.  While living there I started the company and had opportunities to work on many great projects with local architects and designers.

Q: What inspires/drives you?

I am really inspired by people who make an effort to be real and make the most of every day and better the lives of people around them.  I am not sure how this has inspired my designs but I think it must be why I like sensible designs that are progressive and exciting.  I am a nostalgic person but feel a lot of excitement for the future and each day, these feelings have led my designs to have traditional influences with new elements in them.

Q: What is your preferred material or style to work with?

Wood has always been my material of choice but also have a lot of experience with metal and like its sturdiness and minimal qualities.
