Andee Hess Featured in About Face

Excerpt from an article by Becki J. Singer in About Face, Winter 2012.

Andee Hess is something of a wild child in the world of design. Modern, innovative and irreverent, Hess is intent on creating projects that make you stop and think. Her work teems with clean, linear spaces full of depth, mystery and an almost masculine energy. She is one of few designers who doesn't feed on the value of natural light in a space. In fact, she seems to almost prefer the shadows.
