We are a multidisciplinary design studio located in Milwaukee, Wis.

The studio was founded in 2010 when a naive impulse to publicly publish once private sketchbooks transformed into an established design laboratory. Since our infancy, the studio has embodied smart thinking with a passion for design + an honest sense of style. Our work builds on the tradition & craft of the classic American furniture maker, + our attention to detail is unmatched. From evolution to revolution, we’re always challenging + changing the paradigm. - pushing our work to be just a bit better, a bit more refined, each time. Our work is positively disruptive. In a world of low quality sameness, we are distinctly different.

Our philosophy is that design is 'a reward to the passerby who will stop to look at it; a reward to the organization who commissioned it.' When design is deployed it should be a reward. When wood is sawn into shape + ink is laid onto canvas it should be done with respect. A respect to the collaborative team of creatives it took to imagine it. A respect to the natural capital + raw materials it took to make it a reality. When we build furniture, print photographs, and develop new products we solve for a triple bottom line. The world is precious, and we understand the importance of design solutions that are good for the planet, good for our neighbors + good for the  budget.

The studio has accelerated into the design spotlight through a wide array of project types including furniture, interiors, photography, graphics, industrial design, + product development. We have been featured in a variety of print and web magazines, blogs, and articles – including recent attention from MOCOLOCO.com, JournalduDesign.com, design4now.com, TrendBOX Publications, M: Milwaukee's Lifestyle Magazine, UWM Alumni Magazine + UWM Today.

We are proud of our past accomplishments, but are even more excited for the design challenges that lie ahead. Contact us today about your unique project, we cannot wait to get started. Read Less
