Designed & built in Chicago

Spring Modern is a collection of furniture designed by Volume Studios, a Chicago Industrial Design group.

Spring Modern began when founder and principal designer Todd Herlitz was searching for a step stool for his kids. Having just moved into a Mid-Century Modern home, a cheap plastic product was simply not an option, and he decided to design and build his own. The result was the decidedly modern and minimal StepUp, which was quickly followed by the StepUp II when his kids began jockeying for space on the single-kid version.

The goal with the Spring Modern product line continues to be focused on creating functional and beautiful products for the home, all designed and built in & around Chicago.

This is not a full time job, but something we're passionate enough about to spend our limited time between between work and family on. We hope you enjoy it!
