Fredrick H. Zal

Fredrick H. Zal

Fredrick H. Zal’s passion is to help people envision their design dreams. He takes great joy in crafting beautifully with his hands, envisioning with his mind, and pride in his responsibility to contribute to the world both artistically and environmentally. Working with vintage, salvaged, natural, and recycled materials, Fredrick is able to harvest shared cultural memories, and re-craft these narratives with new purpose and invigorated charisma. By discussing the qualities of touch, sight, scent, taste, and sound with you, our patron, he creates works of art that resonate with you beyond the simple functionality of the object, space, or building. Fredrick loves hearing the stories that compose your memories, and then helping you to create new ones that may be shared with family and friends for years to come. It is his intent that these newly crafted heirlooms will spark pleasure today, and will be cherished by you, your friends and family for generations. 

Fredrick lectures on both the theory and practical application of empathy, morphology and material narrative in his architecture, furniture, and art around the United States, where the work is regularly published and exhibited. As a guest professor at a number of Institutions, Fredrick educates fine and applied art students about the impetus of their design pedagogy through speculation upon fundamental concepts of light, statics and kinetics, material science, land|form, and bodily proprioception by investigating their correlation to the spaces we form into our urban environments.

Fredrick takes great pleasure in contact improv dance, yoga, both performing and patroning the arts, hiking and camping with his Siberian Husky pup, and cooking food with his close friends.

Through these actions, Atelier Z has been making the world a better place for you, us, and future generations since 2000 and why Fredrick will continue to advocate for dialogue in the fine + applied arts.
