Workstead is a design studio founded in 2009, led by Stefanie Brechbuehler, Robert Highsmith and Ryan Mahoney. From their studios in Brooklyn, NY and Charleston, SC they focus on architectural and interior design, lighting and furniture. Workstead’s aim is to design responsible, context driven works that create a sense of place for both the objects they contain and the people that experience them. Their palette is strong and rich, yet refined and efficient.
Workstead is currently working on commercial and residential projects in New York and Charleston. The lighting and furniture collections are a natural extension of the studio’s interest in utility, form and material strength. Our products are functional and iconic, balancing a dialogue between past and present. Minimal in spirit, but flexible in use, the collections can be found in shops, restaurants, hotels, and residences all over the world.
