Ruphus is the distillation of years of tinkering and designing, understanding materials, and perfecting a craft.
With deep roots in architecture and design, Ruphus is in fact the product-design arm of Raphael Design. Matt Raphael, a Virginia native and UVa School of Architecture grad, has spent 20+ years in Portland, OR running his design/build firm. His vision follows simple lines and unfettered function across many mediums. His work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Portland Monthly, Treehugger and the Oregonian, among others.
His sun-lit studio in the Hawthorne neighborhood in SE Portland is the epicenter of Ruphus' work, complete with late nights, woodchips and an assortment of toys and tools including a CAMaster CNC.
