Founded in 2007, Cantilever Design is Karman's vision of the modern interior design firm. While not formally trained, his extensive interior design experience, invaluable corporate perspective, and innate sense of style are the basis for his fresh and unique design philosophy, which believes that great design should be boundless, open to interpretation and open to everyone, regardless of budget.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and having lived in Los Angeles and New York
City, Karman's style merges many of the key influences in his life—California's casual and mid-century modernism, New York's urban loft-style and his family's Asian minimalism.
After graduating from the University of California at Los Angeles, Karman began a professional career that has spanned management consulting, marketing and strategic communications. Having worked with Fortune 500 executives for more than a decade, Karman provides his clients with unmatched client service and project
management, as well as an engaging, collaborative working style.
Bringing together his love for fashion, food and family, interior design is the nexus of Karman's passions. His passion and design talent has been featured extensively in the press, including Metropolitan Home magazine, which named one of his projects its Home of the Year in 2009.
