In 2009, Todd Leowy founded Square Root Industries in Portland, Oregon. He combined his design sensibilities and creativity with an engineering degree, and as a result designs and fabricates high-end modern furniture for both commercial and residential clients.
His coffee table collection for Square Root Industries combines laser cut steel in white, black, or powder coated colors (and sometimes photography) with various woods and is then covered with a clear acrylic top, creating uniquely modern mixed medium pieces of functional furniture.
