MEET BRIAN DUBOIS OF DUBOIS COLLECTION...
What do you design? Furniture
Where are you from? Born/raised in River Rouge, Michigan, Studio in Hazel Park.
How long have you been in Detroit/metro area? All my life.......
How long have you been working as a designer? I would say since I started attending the University Detroit Mercy in 1994-1999. I furthered my design approach when I studied at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2009-2011.
Why do you design? I enjoy the creative aspects of bringing ideas to life and the challenge of finding the right balance between design/function/fabrication to create an exceptional product.
How does working in/around Detroit influence your work? Detroit has a history of industry and innovation and a collaborative platform for manufacturing. I focus on both design and fabrication and being in Detroit I can easily source materials and work with other fabricators on projects I cannot accommodate in my own studio.
