Modernica Studio is an L.A.-based family business that works within the design principles of the vibrant North American Modernism movement—particularly the Case Study Program, which originated in L.A. in the '40s—while evolving with the times and introducing new products and new ideas.
Founded in 1999, Modernica embraces this modernist movement’s ethos and idea of the quintessential California lifestyle and attitude, and is committed to preserving this aesthetic as exemplified by Richard Neutra, George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, and Hendrik Van Keppel and Taylor Green.
Modernica is responsible for revitalizing the almost lost art of high-pressure fiberglass molding. The factory is home to the historic fiberglass presses and specialized machinery that has been used in the production of thousands of chairs for over three generations. They also operate world-class upholstery and wood shops on their four-acre campus.
Simple design, high-quality, high-functionality, and accessibility are the basic tenets which drive Modernica. It is this clear vision and commitment that has enabled them to transform from their beginnings as a small vintage store to a distinguished manufacturer and designer of modernist and new furniture.
