10 Questions with Steve Sudeth

Steve Sudeth (& family), Affiliate IIDA, Creative Director, GlasPro

What is your favorite iconic chair:
I love the Eames molded rocker! At the moment my favorite thing to sit in is a hammock my friend DJ gave us after she spent a year in Chile. My son, Caleb, loves all the shades of blue that are woven together.

What is your favorite California destination:
If I have a free day in LA you can find me at Amoeba Records in Hollywood. I like to listen to vinyl and the last time I was there I picked up Flowers by the Rolling Stones, Innervisions by Stevie Wonder and Extension of a Man by Donny Hathaway.

What is your favorite color:
Purple. Two of my favorite artists, Mark Tansey and Mark Rothko, have done amazing things with this color. It always resonates with me.

What is your go-to outfit:
Bow tie, slim fit shirt, waistcoat, trouser with a subtle check and socks that complement the tie. Luckily have have many combinations of this outfit!

Where would we find you on the weekend:
Sitting in front of the stereo with Caleb as I introduce him to new music. On Sunday we listened to Led Zeppelin II for the first time.

Gold or Silver:
Silver. Though the only item of jewelry I own is my wedding ring (white gold) so I feel woefully inadequate when answering this.

Beer or Wine:
Beer, beer & beer. A couple great small breweries just opened up where I live and so I spend quite a lot of time at Smog City or Monkish breweries. I love Belgian style blonde ales, Leffe Blonde is a great one that’s pretty easy to find.

Beach or Mountains:
The ocean kinda scares me (I’m from Illinois) so I’ll take the mountains every time.

Online or Print Magazines:
I still prefer the experience of print magazines. Until they find a better way for note taking and highlighting on digital media I’ll continue to buy print.

Open or Private Offices:
Open, even though I get distracted easily. It promotes creativity and gives me room for calisthenics.

I’m a midwest transplant who happily settled down in California with my gorgeous wife Anna. I enjoy playing hockey, reading philosophy and teaching my son, Caleb, about David Bowie. Before becoming the Creative Director at GlasPro I was a professor of religion, philosophy and culture at a small liberal arts Univeristy in LA.  I can’t wait to get more involved with the design world and help bring visions into reality.
