New York designer David Weeks founded the studio in 1996 as an umbrella for his diverse interests, which range from traditionally grounded metal fabrication techniques to contemporary toy culture. Over the past two decades, his product line has evolved from a core grouping of elemental lighting fixtures to a broader collection of upholstered seating, side tables, and sculptural objects with a simpatico sense of materiality and detailing.
The 2013 opening of the Tribeca storefront—one part gallery, one part creative lab—provided the opportunity to showcase the full breadth of the studio’s collaborations and capabilities—from high-concept light installations and angular, asymmetrical sofas to more experimental offerings.
