Lobster Trap Collection

Item details

Series of furniture installations made from Lobster Traps from Maine.

Maine is a never-ending source of inspiration for Asa Pingree, the multicolored lobster traps ubiquitous on the island where he grew up informed his visual sensitivity.

Wanting to pay homage to the hardworking coastal Maine fishing community, Asa decided to work with local manufacturers to design a line of objects and furniture.

The Lobster Trap Collection brings the striking colorful mesh to homes, commercial venues, and events across the country whether as outdoor furniture or part of larger art installations.

Photos from previous collaborations include 29 rooms (a refinery29 event), ICFF 2018 bar, CMCA (Center for Maine Contemporary Art), Likeminds Camp 2018, this place nyc, and other private events.

Available for purchase or rental.

By focusing on structural integrity, movement, and comfort, Asa uncovers silhouettes that look natural in any setting. Inspired by an eclectic island community off the coast of Maine, his foundational pieces exude the strength and grace of the bold coast where Asa learned his craft.

Using his extensive knowledge of classic lines and lightweight yet sturdy structures, Asa has found a way to bring a bit of Maine to Brooklyn, where the company is located. The sculptural elements in his work informed his first furniture line, which combines swooping lines with contemporary angles that you can either relax into or admire from a distance.
