HELLO. HAPPY NEW MONTH.
I feel like it’s been a long time since my last post but it really hasn’t. Probably because I’m currently swamped with graduate school applications. Ew. But anyway, I hope you’re all doing good!
So to get on with the post, Apparatus Design Studio specialises in light fixtures, furnishings, and objets d’art & was founded by Jeremy Anderson and Gabriel Hendifar. I had never heard of them before I came across their website so of course, after seeing pictures of their Manhattan studio, I had to share.
The studio, which emits 70s – early 80s glamour, is designed in a way that feels very residential and lounge-y (basically a showroom you want to chill and hang out in) so people can see things and imagine them in their own environment.
I think one of the coolest things about it is that it used to be part of a school. I mean, who would look at it now and think that? That’s one of the best things about interior design for me. The way you can completely transform a space.
It doubles as a gallery of sorts, showcasing lighting and objects among a mix of furnishings and graphic works of contemporary art all over; from pleated wall sculptures by Robert Moreland to neo-Cubist paintings by Mattea Perrotta.
“We were definitely looking to Halston’s and Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic apartments—this idea of a space that feels sexy yet welcoming and kind of earthy, but not too granola.”
Each individual fixture is assembled by hand in the studio.
“The twosome consider the whole picture, rather than just key elements. Everything they touch turns to gold…or brass, copper, leather, horsehair, marble, cast crystal, and beyond.”
The hand weathered Cloud lamp in the picture above is one of their signature designs.
