Misha Kahn was born in Duluth, Minnesota, and graduated from Rhode Island school of Design with a BFA in furniture design in 2011. His work exists at the intersection of design and sculpture, exploring a wide variety of media and scales from mouse to house. Kahn's approach melds an array of processes, from casting, carving, welding and weaving, to imaginative and singular modes of production. According to former president of the Rhode Island School of Design John Maeda, “Misha creates work for a parallel wonderland, where traditional perception of material and structure is pushed to the edges of the room to make space for one big party.” His work has been exhibited internationally and is in the permanent collection of numerous museums and public collections; such as The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Corning Museum of Glass.
