Ampersand began in 2009 to create art informed by the human experience. Founded by Tim Karoleff, who calls Dror Benshetrit and Jonah Becker mentors, the Cincinnati-based brand creates objects that fuse function and emotion in thoughtful, relatable designs. Its popular works include barnacle-inspired cardboard Wallpockets and a flower-like pendant lamp called Bloom.
