NICE TO MEET YOU

Marni Bowman is the principal designer of Franklin St. Studio, located opposite the iconic Roger's sugar factory in East Vancouver. Vancouver born and raised, she strives to create pieces that reflect this city and surrounding landscape. As we adapt to smaller living spaces, utility and aesthetics need not compete. Inventive objects can engage unused space, allowing for a liberating openness. Pieces are designed with honesty, and aim to facilitate a relationship between object, functionality, and composition. 

Marni is a graduate of the University of British Columbia (Natural Resource Conservation, honours) and Selkirk College (Fine Woodworking).
