Chris Streng
Chris has always been interested in the relationship between objects & emotional response. He uses a deep understanding of our collective cultural lexicon to create opportunities for emotional reaction between person & object.

Chris and Streng have won numerous awards, including multiple IDEA awards, Good Design awards, Red Dot, SPARK and Interior Design awards among others.
Chris is the founder of CNID, an organization that helps creative companies offset their carbon footprint through annual reforestation projects.
He also sits on the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Design Council.



Much of Streng’s early success grew from experience and opportunity in the furniture and housewares market in Italy and Japan.  The early work of Chris Streng led to a number of International showcase events and museum exhibitions including the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum,  Tokyo Designers Block’s IDEE exhibitions, Interni Exhibitions and supported events from Surface Magazine, FRAME magazine and Interior Design Magazine.
