Steven Mattern Design + Build

Puzzle Cartographer
Albuquerque, New Mexico

"I attempt to mesh the rigor and investigation of engineering with the vision and poetry of architecture."

Putting a place on a map isn't always as easy as it sounds––and for Steven, well, it involves a whole lot of laser-cutting and polishing. Trained in mechanical engineering and architecture, he works to combine the best of both worlds with his laser-etched wood puzzle maps. His finished products are precise, accurate and, above all, they're mighty hard to walk past without fiddling with. Steven affixes a magnet to each piece so the puzzle map can be taken to new heights: a metal door, a cabinet or a refrigerator are now all fair game when it comes to his mini geography lessons.
