Designers Andi Kovel and Justin Parker create and define Esque Studio as a collaboration rooted in the innovative exploration of glass. The two met in Brooklyn at Urban Glass where they worked as artists for hire to elite fine artists and designers. Their shared vision and aspiration gave birth to Esque, with the concept of creating modern, functional, concept-based glassware aimed at the design industry and away from the pedestal. For the past 20 years the duo have led a movement in glass by shattering the rules and redefining notions of craft and material associated with their medium.
The duo have risen to international acclaim, most notably by being named part of Time Magazine’s “Design 100", today’s most influential and inspired international designers. They have designed and completed projects for clients including, Donna Karen, Ralph Lauren, The W Hotel, Nike, Anthropologie, Sephora and Design Within Reach. The process of glassblowing is collaborative in nature and has inspired award winning lines designed with Harry Allen Design, Cedar & Moss and Heath Ceramics.
