I’ve been photographing, collaborating and hanging out with designer/architect/artist Lukas Machnik for years, so it was only natural to pull for him when we competed in the NBC Design Competition “American Dream Builders”, hosted by another of my subjects Nate Berkus. Lukas’ blend of artful & elegant minimalism mixed with healthy dose of do-it-yourself genius took him deep into the competition eventually winning with an epic “Black Beach House”. It’s a pleasure to share our latest Design Portrait featuring the man himself. Sincere thanks to Samer Almadani for his amazing DP skills and John Kamys for his lovely music and script. We’re looking forward to shooting our next “Portrait” soon!
