Matthew Bohne is a Brooklyn-based designer whose work explores how we collect, categorize, and display artifacts to understand the interplay between objects, spaces, and people. With a rich material practice, including painting, sculpture, book arts, large-scale installation, and scenic design for theater, he explores the intersection of history, culture, and design. His goal is to create spaces and things that reflect our quest for meaning, beauty, and connection.

Matthew earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was awarded the Alpha Rho Chi Medal and the Norton E. Salk Scholarship from the American Institute of Architects. He also received a post-professional Master of Architecture degree from the Yale School of Architecture, where he was the recipient of the Moulton Andrus Award for excellence in art and architecture and the Frank D. Israel Scholarship. His work has been exhibited and published internationally, including in Architectural Review, the Cambridge Architectural Journal, the RISD Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, and Documenta 14.

Currently, he is a Project Manager at Architecture Research Office. Together with Lucy Siyao Liu, Matthew is the co-founder of PROPS SUPPLY, a design studio that publishes PROPS PAPER, a publication on image culture and technology. Matthew is a registered architect in New York.
