Quincy Ellis, 31, had spent years fabricating art for talents such as Fernando Mastrangelo when he came to a realization: “I didn’t think there was enough being done with resin.”

So Ellis, an industrial designer who studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, founded Facture Studio in 2015 along with Nebojsa “Shoba” Sheric, an artist from Sarajevo. Since then, he and his partner have been developing tables, shelves, and wall pieces with simple geometries that exploit multiple layers, saturations, and opacities of resin.

We asked the breakout designer about who inspires him, his most treasured possessions, and what daily rituals get him in the zone. Read the answers below.

Something you always carry with you: Trying to visualize how everything I see was made.

First childhood memory related to design: I spent a lot of time around water when I was young and remember really wanting to make a table lamp that was surrounded by water.

Daily ritual to get into a creative space: We usually pick a visual property of a piece we like, and then do some free association and see where it leads us.
