With the ability to actually construct the furniture he designs, his creations take on a fresh and personal vibe that makes each one a distinct and unconventional work of originality.

Combining a strong sense of tradition with an urban mentality, Kucan has little use for the prosaic, choosing instead to redefine the relationships between line, texture and spatial semblance. He is also a prolific world traveler, and often gains inspiration from the most obscure sources. This global awareness has instilled in Kucan a tenacious commitment to building in recycled and renewable materials, often resulting in striking compositions of offbeat character.

He currently lives in LA in a Spanish Revival home of his own restoration with his girlfriend and two smelly hound dogs. An expert in Chinese martial arts, he still occasionally fights competitively, with often disastrous results.
