Architecture, Interiors, Furniture & Exhibition Design & Fabrication
Who We Are
We make stuff: architecture, interiors, custom furniture, and exhibitions. We value craftsmanship, innovation and refinement. We are award-winning designers and craftsmen committed to the pursuit of Beauty through refined design and quality craftsmanship. We make use of traditional methods and advanced technologies. We work with real materials solid wood, leather, metals, oil. We engage with these materials to coax out the intended function and a feeling of beauty. We work with clients to discover innovative solutions for complex design problems. We design it and make it in our studio/workshop at Industry City, in Brooklyn, NY.
Design is a process of discovery, that starts with defining the problem, setting the problem space, exploring possibilities, and testing possible solutions the prepping a solution path that is most likely to result in a project that solves for the problem in the most elegant, beautiful and cost-effective manner possible.
We engage in a “conversation” with the materials as we simultaneously engage in a conversation with you. The wood tells us what is possible. You tell us what you want. Somewhere in the midst of this intimate dialogue a piece of furniture emerges: a piece of furniture that is unique — that is yours.
