Recently named one of the top 50 young designers of the Americas (Young Designers: Americas, Daab), A. Jacob Marks’ work is rooted in a philosophy that argues for the inextricability of good design and fine workmanship. Currently Marks serves as principal and lead designer for U.S.A. based Skram Furniture Company. His designs for Skram are defined by distinctive austerity and warmth and a timeless quality accentuated by the use of natural materials like timber, leather, stone, and metal.

Distinguished for his graceful seating elements and spare, rectilinear casegoods and tables — unique in their negotiation of proportion, line and visual weight — Marks’ designs have garnered international praise and been showcased in a range of residential and commercial spaces throughout the world.
