Rob Zinn’s non-traditional approach to the field of industrial design led him to co-found blankblank in 2004 in Northern California. Over the past ten years under Rob’s direction, blankblank has produced a collection of furniture, lighting and objects that is recognized and enjoyed around the world. Rob currently lives and works in, and is inspired by, a small agricultural community in the California Delta that has become his home. There he utilizes his hands, machines, technologies, skilled artisans and an adventurous clientele to create objects and experiences that challenge the notions of art, design, need and desire.
Rob counts among his accomplishments receiving the 2016 Interior Design Magazine Best of Year Award and 2016 ICFF Editors’ Award for Best Lighting.
