About Leah K. S. Amick : Leah K. S. Amick is a furniture and product designer currently based in Providence, Rhode Island where she focuses on fabricating and marketing her original designs.

Utilizing visual and tactile elements, her most recent pieces provoke curiosity and stimulate a sense of awareness in an object while retaining its functionality. Leah recently completed a master’s degree in furniture design from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and holds a bachelor’s degree from Purdue University in industrial design. She has been involved in a variety of projects ranging from jewelry to medical equipment and her work has been featured in many design exhibitions and competitions.
