David Reiss, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, is the principal designer of the match collection, working in collaboration with the Italian artisans who ultimately hand craft each and every piece. All designs are rooted in classic European forms from the 14th through 19th centuries; many are cast from molds made from original antiques. Pewter, as Reiss quickly discovered, is an elegant chameleon that can effortlessly harmonize with its surroundings, whether casual or formal, traditional or modern.
When David Reiss founded match in 1995, he single-handedly introduced America to the beauty of Italian pewter. Reiss discovered the possibilities of this rich, warm material, which he describes as having an “old soul”, while traveling through Italy. There, he found family-owned workshops that had been producing pewter for generations. He fondly recalls the owner of one of the workshops, who was known to sell his pewter wares from boxes strapped to the back of his Vespa.
