black helmut is...

Curtis Felten and Chase Young: two art & design bro's working in fort wayne, indiana and london, england respectively. Curtis and Chase became friends in 2017 over an average post-punk song; due to very natural evolutionary trends, black helmut was born in June of 2020 when Curtis (who is a designer and fabricator by trade) texted Chase (who is 8 years Curtis inferior but apparently swag enough to embark on such a journey with) about an idea to use Steel Telescoping Tube, or "Telespar" to make furniture and art objects for the home. As a designer, Curtis has always had an affinity towards anticipatory design. A philosophy in which each object looks terrifyingly simple but displays unique beauty whilst possessing excessive functionality.

black helmut is exploring the intersection between form and function in the home.

the black helmut vision is clear: to create furniture that pushes against the zeitgeist whilst providing inimitable machined form and function with a beautiful material that is referential for both Curtis and the layperson.

with love,

bh
