Canadian builder Danielle Schön is all about growth. Like her colleague and hero, Julie Ann Pedalino, Danielle Schön of Schön Studio is a skill hoarder – she’s always looking for new things to learn, master, and add to her evolving toolkit. But where Pedalino’s path has lead her to computer aided design and CNC machining to realize her creative vision, Schön has skewed more visceral.
Her constant need for growth and personal development has helped her to build an impressive portfolio of work and technical chops – which she will discuss in detail in the podcast.
As a builder, the exciting thing for me is how she is a top notch fabricator first. Like other builders in this series, because she comes from outside the craft, Schön is freed from the dominant narratives and traditions around what a bike should be. As a result, Schön’s solutions and construction can take unexpected and delightful turns. She deeply understands the opportunity of her material and her process – that is her guide.
