Genus Furniture is a contemporary furniture design company founded by Eugene Stoltzfus in 2012 as Eugene Stoltzfus Furniture Design to produce furniture that was at home with his architectural work.

Working with materials such as bamboo and cork, Genus looks to expand on the possibilities of abundant, green materials in the world of design. The elemental elegance of our objects reflects the natural beauty and strengths inherent in their materials.

The final distilled form of each object reveals itself at the nexus of the contributing essentials: the qualities of the materials, the functional requirements, the perception of the forces at play, the machine and fabrication characteristics, and the unexpected opportunities that present themselves during the iterative design process.
