Nicole Hodsdon was inspired by mid-century modern architecture and design in and around Detroit, and launched Ciseal in 2013. These four things made Ciseal’s first product – the Ray Tablet Stand – and since then they have designed additional products with layers of wood that are visually appealing. All products are handcrafted to order in their Troy, Michigan studio from sustainably harvested, responsibly harvested birch forests from the state’s upper peninsula. From the pen holder to the side table, every Ciseal product offers additional functions and is reminiscent of sculptural forms through the dramatic bends in the layered plywood.
Available in oak, maple, or walnut with brass or nickel fittings, the pen holder holds your pens (and other materials) in one place instead of rolling off your desk and under other furniture.
The Ray Tablet Stand, available in walnut, maple, cherry, oak or sapele, is a minimalist tablet stand that holds your iPad at the perfect angle and looks great while doing it.
Stylish house firewood in the Mission Firewood Holder, available in oak, maple or walnut. The aspen leaf-inspired design can rest by the fireplace with easy access to your extra wood. Don’t have a fireplace? Use it to store your towels, blankets, magazines, toys, and more.
Available in oak, walnut or maple, the Alden Table is inspired by the overlapping shapes of the Alden B. Dow Home & Studio in Midland, Michigan. The unexpected nooks and crannies give a mark to the residence, with space for a drink or an alarm clock above and books and magazines below.
