"I am drawn to a physical connection with furniture," says Jacob Nitz.

It's no wonder, then, that the young designer recently debuted his first collection for the Dutch fabrication up-and-comers Associated. Named simply Amirite, the series of tables and seats invites people to sit down by thoughtfully combining wood and steel. "Furniture is not an autonomous sculpture to be viewed from afar, it demands to be touched," Nitz explains.

The Amirite pieces do look good in a very non-threatening but high design way. So pull up a chair. Nitz put a lot of thought into it, after all.
