Biography

Axis Mundi is a multidisciplinary design firm founded by John Beckmann. The firm's architectural, interior, and furniture designs have recently been featured in Metropolitan Home, Spaces, and The New York Times. In 1996, John Beckmann received a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts for the book The Virtual Dimension: Architecture, Representation and Crash Culture, Princeton Architectural Press, 1998. He is a graduate of Parsons School of Design. The work of Axis Mundi reflects a passionate commitment to sensitive and timeless design solutions. John Beckmann is direct when it comes to discussing the design process and his goal of arriving at thoughtful solutions to complex problems. "I'm not interested in chasing novel forms for their own sake, I'm more concerned with how the work will be perceived in the future, my sense of history is that most work inevitably betrays the time that it was built, regardless of its author's intentions, and in fact - the work that seems the most novel and of the moment, is just that. To the contrary, I think that our work is very concise, pragmatic and somewhat utopian, as I truly believe that intelligent design should be affordable, and not something possessed by the elite. I suppose that makes us very democratic."
