I have to put his bio here - I just love this;

Miron Lior (www.mironlior.com) has stormed the world of design in 2007 upon graduation from PRATT Institute. His first product on the market, The Conceal Shelf produced by Umbra, debuted at ICFF in 2006 and became a hit, won several awards and garnered international acclaim. In 2008 Miron opened his own studio, focusing on product design while maintaining the capacity to create custom furniture and objects.

Miron's designs can be described as Expressive Minimalist, notable for the elegant balance he achieves between form and function, while keeping his pieces exciting and engaging. The work reflects his continuing interest in the interchange between design and contemporary culture, as well as his belief in the importance of sustainable design practice.

Miron’s designs reflect his international background. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia, Miron has lived and studied in Israel and the United States. His studies have touched upon fields as diverse as Information Technologies and Engineering, Cultures of the Far East and Art History. After trying his hand in the more technical professions, he found his path to self-expression and fulfillment in furniture and product design. Miron was awarded several international honors for various designs, and his work has been carried by galleries and museums such as the MOMA and MAD Museum. Miron now lives and works in New York. He is also a professional DJ.

congratulations on the site, the lovely furniture and the brilliant storming!!!
