Workstead was founded in 2009 by Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Andrew Highsmith - both graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design architecture program. The firm focuses on architectural and interior design, furniture, lighting, and exhibitions. With a studio aim to design "responsible works that create a sense of place for both the objects they contain and the people who experience them" , their work is impactful yet beautifully simplified.
I had seen several images of the studio's work before knowing anything about the firm or realizing that some of my favorite design details had originated from the same people. Below are some examples of their work.
This cabinet handle is perfection for me.
I would really like to stay in the Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn's first boutique hotel, and WORKSTEAD's most well known commercial project.
