Born in New York in 1965
Ross Menuez started exploring design in high school, working on a small aircraft
he hoped would launch a career with NASA. After moving to Costa Rica and back
again, he took up sculpture at Hunter College, NY and then became interested
in metalwork after building a 4-foot custom steel railing. He then worked as
a metal fabricator and began developing his own designs. Since 1992, he has
produced different series of furniture, lighting and accessories, using mostly
stainless steel combined with nylon, bakelite, fiberglass, silicone, and polypropylene.
Menuez was recently selected as "best new designer" by design magazine
editors at the 1996 ICFF in New York as well as shortlisted for Blueprint magazine's
design competition at "100% Design" in London.
