With shops in Berkeley and San Francisco, Zinc Details sells a tremendous variety of furniture, accessories, lighting products, toys and art / design objects from a large number of contemporary designers. From Dorothee Becker's classic Uten.Silo (for Ingo Maurer) to the much more contemporary work of Mathmos, Alessi and Offi (as well as a number of local designers and artists), Zinc's small shops are full of many wonderful little - and big - treasures.
