Essential luxury crafted with authentic beauty.

What is your favorite material to work with?

"We both love and loathe vegetable tanned leather. Its like a new canvas. You want to keep it beautiful and clean, but as you're working it shows every blemish. Veg-tanned leather is a great metaphor for life. It so pure at first, and as it ages the stains begin archiving a historical timeline showing character and telling a story the more its used."
-- Moses Nadel

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"We want people to play and feel like they are discovering a new relationship and addition to their environment."
-- Moses Nadel

What motivates and inspires you?

"We are inspired by our philosophy: “…because quality is the antithesis of waste.”"
-- Moses Nadel

What makes a space special?

"The balance of active and calm. A special space should be an arranged balance of curated objects leaving you room to breathe and drift into your imagination, while also areas to mentally stretch out and creatively lounge."
-- Moses Nadel

What’s unique about your work?

"We use repetition to create a dynamic balance between form and function with an intense hands on approach and great deal of attention to each product."
-- Moses Nadel

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"Our creative process is both physical and aesthetically refined. We individually hand construct and creatively design all of our products in our Brooklyn studio as a team. In essence, each piece is interactive from its beginning with a range of input and ideas on the table always intending to maintain a contemporary and timeless feel with luxury and longevity in mind."
-- Moses Nadel

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"Every product is a balance of perfection and on the spot problem solving... and damage control. Basically we do a lot of "Oh, shit!" and then we delve into figuring out how to fix it, which is often where the sweat turns into magic. It's probably a universal truth for all creatives."
