L&G x Henrybuilt: Common Ground installation during NYC x Design

During 2019 NYCxDESIGN through September, Henrybuilt present Common Ground, a showroom installation by Dylan Davis and Jean Lee of Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, who conceived the show based on their history working with Henrybuilt and the resulting overlap of the two brands’ values, references, and methodologies.  Ladies & Gentlemen will be featuring new lighting and styled vignettes with object by Origin throughout the gallery space, responding to the Henrybuilt system’s elegant functionality by complementing it with organic forms and soft materiality.  

Common Ground will mark a reconnection of the two brands’ creative roots that can be traced back to their beginnings in Seattle, Washington.  Davis, co-founder of Ladies & Gentlemen Studio began his design career as an intern at Henrybuilt in 2005.  Davis worked closely with founder Scott Hudson to articulate the foundational standards of Henrybuilt’s system.  Lee, Davis’s co-founder at Ladies & Gentlemen, was pivotal in the development of leather products for the company.  In addition to fostering significant growth for the Henrybuilt brand, their six-year working relationship provided Davis and Lee with the philosophical and practical knowledge upon which they based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio’s driving principles.  This installation will reflect this by highlighting the intersection of the brands’ work in shaping beautifully functional spaces that celebrate elegance and simplicity.

Still / Life: L&G x Calico Wallpaper x MUD Exhibit in Milan 2019

hero_image_with text.jpg

L&G debuted at Milan during Salone del Mobile this year with Still / Life, an exhibit presented by Calico Wallpaper in collaboration with Mud Australia. A sensorial installation that offered guests a moment of introspection, interaction, and stillness, Still / Life featured site-specific gradients by Calico Wallpaper, interiors and lighting by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, and ceramics by Mud Australia. The spatial concept designed by studio founders Dylan Davis and Jean Lee, envisioned a space that embraced a dual state of tranquility and vitality, revealing a calming yet enriching environment that opened the senses to elemental possibilities: a momentary day dream, a fond memory, or a chance conversation. The installation incorporated elements of process and materiality from the exhibitors as a means to celebrate their collective creative energy. The lighting collection Myrna, which uses color, shape, and materiality to define intimate spaces through light was launched at this occasion.

Editorial series with Charlie Schuck and Kaarem

For L&G, we strive on the explorative spirit especially through meaningful collaborations. Collaborations for us is about bringing together like-minded creatives with different complementary perspectives, approach, skills. Furthermore, it’s about pushing each other to do something outside of what we each normally do to create something special together.

For our latest collaboration, we brought together two long-term friends (and collaborators), photographer Charlie Shuck, and clothing brand, Kaarem to do a editorial shoot exploring the duality of opposites.; solid vs. transparent, light vs dark, soft vs hard.

New Collaboration Brewing

We're really excited to be working with our dear friend/artist, Nicholas Nyland in creating a whole collection of wind chimes which we'll launch in mid-May!

We've been posting some process shots on our EXPLORATION page  and we'll be sharing them next week and will be exhibiting them at New York Designweek along with other new works from MAY 17-20 at Reclaim NYC and Noho Design District. (Details TBA) 

We've been a long-time fan of Nicholas' work and been wanting to work with him for years now! We love his fun & uninhibited way wanting to work with him for years now!  We love his uninhibited ceramic pieces and his use of  fun colors and  textures.

Needless to say it's going to be an exciting collaboration and we think it'll yield a really interesting result contrasted with our simple forms and material pallet!

Here are some photos from our brainstorming  session with Nicholas and at his lovely home!

Chikabird + Piano Nobile Line Debut this weekend at UCU!

If anyone is around this weekend in Seattle, please come by and say hello and check out our exciting new line of notebooks and cardcases with Piano Nobile at the BIG holiday Urban Craft Uprising show!
December 5th & 6th, 2009
11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both days
Seattle Center Exhibition Hall
Admission: FREE!
Isabelle and Nickolas of Piano Nobile runs a multi-faceted design studio where they could be described as professional designers and colalborators. Isabelle has a painting and printing background with a great sense of material, color, and texture. Nickolas on the other hand has an architecture background with mad building skills in all realms whether it be funiture, design build or a large scale printing table. I'm pretty sure he can build a pyramid.... I remember reading that in his resume somewhere....
Not only do they have the perfect print studio with their self-designed and welded textile printing set up, they're also just a short bike ride away from our studio in Ballard! It's almost too good to be true!
(and yes, convenience does matter...)
Did I mention that they have a dog named Bauhaus, and also owns a sweet vintage Vanagon and Volvo?
Can you stand it?!....I can barely keep my composure thinking about all their awesomeness.

So here it is! Our collaboration line with PN! Okay, so come to UCU to see all the goods in person! You can also go to our shop to check out the entire PN collaboration line.
