About Nick & Michael
Combining his love for skateboarding and music, self-taught woodworker and industrial designer Nick Pourfard founded Prisma Guitars when he was 22 years old. Operating out of a well-equipped garage in The Sunset District of San Francisco, Nick hand-builds unique guitars using wood from broken skateboards, working with Michael Svendsen, a designer and exhibition installer whose specialty is metal fabrication. Prisma Guitars has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and online in Vogue, Vice, Colossal, Hypebeast, and more.
For Workshop Residence, Nick and Michael created an exclusive line of doorstops and a limited edition of mancala game boards. They also invited designer Hannah Quinn to make an edition of her signature hand brooms using off-cut blocks of their unique material.
