At the core of Konekt is Helena Sultan, a former photographer and award-winning documentary filmmaker. Helena began developing her eye at an early age, influenced by the rich colors and layered textures of her mother's abstract oil paintings as well as the patinated metal of her father's gritty industrial plant. Helena further honed her sensibilities as she traveled widely, absorbing different cultures and influences. These various experiences have culminated in her signature collection of furniture. Each piece is handcrafted in Pennsylvania by skilled master craftsmen and artisans. All woods are sustainable American hardwoods, hand-finished with the finest oils.
