Post Century Credenza
The founder of Modern Union, a local design/build outfit that specializes in modern cabinetry and furniture.
A believer in the traditions and earned experience of craftsmanship, the marks of Jaren (and Modern Union's) work are his precision loving 'god is in the details' ethos, his belief that modernism at its best represents innovation and hard won simplicity, and the ability to juxtapose raw, patina-rich materials with sleek lines and finishes creating unique, timeless, character filled, and hopefully, heirloom quality results. Modern Union will happily take on any design project that elevates details to obsessiveness.
Utah Heritage Foundation
As Executive Director of Utah Heritage Foundation, Kirk Huffaker is an advocate for vibrant neighborhoods and Main Streets, recognition of historic modernism, and excellence in planning and design. Since 1998, Kirk has provided assistance throughout Utah to build local preservation leadership, develop policy, and save historic buildings. He has served in the position of Executive Director of Utah Heritage Foundation since 2008.
REVOLV issue No. 02
A Utah Native. A sheet metal worker. Revolv magazine publisher and editor. A fan of really cool stuff. Nuff said.
