LUKAS MACHNIK - TV personality winner of 1st season of NBC's AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS - Interior Designer, Product Designer and Artist.                                                                                       Lukas Machnik moves beyond the traditionalist philosophy of Interior Design with a fresh, radicalist sensibility. A true minimalist at heart, Machnik juxtaposes raw architecture with intimate objects and an atmospheric palette. His practice is one of sensory-enhancement, allowing spaces to breathe so that there is room for possibility, room for new experience. Machnik describes his design style as "curated," and the term couldn't be more apt. "Art shows better when space doesn't confine," says Machnik. That's life in a gallery. Machnik's recent public projects include GALLERY AESTHETE, a menswear boutique on Chicago's Oak Street. Machnik is a cast member and the winner of the 1st season of NBC's AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS hosted by Nate Berkus.

LUKAS MACHNIK INTERIOR DESIGN specializes in higend residential project, hospitality, commercial and public design. For more information on the firm please go to

Machnik recently launched MONUMENTS, a new collection of ebonized hardwood furniture. Reacting to our contemporary condition, Machnik aggrandizes the very act of sitting. Are we in a moment of hyperactivity, or one of deep sleep? Left unanswered, these questions further enhance the exoticism of Machnik's furniture pieces. Once activated, these monolithic chairs and benches create moments of stillness, moments of enthronement.

Other projects include BLACK/NOIR exhibition at PAVILION (Chicago), featuring new drawings and furniture by Lukas Machnik, ADAL jewelry by NORA RENAUD for SOME/THINGS Magazine, and RICK OWENS bronze.

AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS MODULAR #5 This week designers on American Dream Builders were split up to four teams, that said we did four homes! This is a very interesting challenge because each team had an identical modular home - the "WHITE BOX CHALLENGE" the outcome was spectacular - four completely different points of view! This board is my interpretation of modular modern home - my inspiration and the AFTER photos. The style guid for this design is - clean lines, open concept that is all white to make the small space feel open and large. Charming rustic chic with collected feel, this home can be moved to the beaches of Malibu or in to the fields of Montana. Understated elegance is the key with a repetition of color pallets, I am going for splash of color that came from a killer Moroccan rug, that was the key inspiration. #DreamBuilders #AmericanDreamBuilders #NBC #NateBerkus
