Sonnenzimmer is Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. "Having worked out of the Bird Machine for several years—mentored by Jay Ryan—we decided to start our own shop in Summer of 2006. A happy string of events helped it all come together. Sonnenzimmer is located on the northside of Chicago, in a neighborhood called Roscoe Village. Here we meet, greet, hang out with fellow friends and artists and crank away in the kindred spirit of our Chicago colleagues."
