FOUNDER

 

With a background as an architect, Max Gunawan has long held a passion for minimal design and clean lines that optimize the use of small spaces. It was from this passion that Lumio emerged.

Today Lumio has been covered in publications from the Wall Street Journal to GQ, featured in New York City’s Museum of Modern Art design store, and was named one of the “Top 10 Most Innovative Crowdfunded Companies” by Entrepreneur Magazine. Born in Jakarta, Max is currently based in San Francisco.
