NACHSHON is a local business with a small family-like team. Our craftsmen play a significant part in our workshop and take deep care in every stage of the manufacturing process. Without them the designs and ideas would stay only on paper and computer files.

Tomer Nachshon, an Israeli architect and designer, founded NACHSHON studio at his father, Gad Nachshon’s workshop in the Hadar neighborhood of Haifa. While growing up he absorbed the love and understanding of materials and techniques which he applies today to create his different products. The combination of his architectural
knowledge and the physical work enables constant interaction between different scales and points of view.

Gad Nachshon, Tomer’s father, was born to a family of 17 children in the same house that later became the business workshop. Gad started a business for sound and light systems, creating speaker cases, different sound  accessories, and more. In his spare time, he also built pieces of furniture for his own household. For Tomer, Gad is the inspiration for establishing his own studio – a business that includes designing and manufacturing well-rounded local products.

Herman, has worked with Tomer’s family for almost three decades starting as an electrical engineer for Gad’s business and learned basic woodworking needed Our Team for speaker boxes. Today, Herman is able to support all our needs of woodworking for different furniture items. Moreover, while founding the studio Tomer discovered that he used to work in a fashion shop in Latvia and has
basic sewing skills. As a result, Herman is now in charge of all the sewing in our workshop, contributing his abilities
deep into our designing and manufacturing processes.
