Journalist Noelle McCarthy described nathan as having ‘a lucrative talent for translating branding ephemera into built spaces people want to be in. The work inhabits a sweet spot between art and commerce, and the spaces he creates share a luxurious tactility but not a strict aesthetic.’ Working on a global portfolio of projects, Knight Associates apply an honest and tactile aesthetic to residential, commercial, and experiential briefs from a cultural and contextually informed approach.
