Vendor Spotlight for Remodelista NYC Market: Bartleby Objects

March 8, 2016

Now based in Brooklyn, New York, designer Mary L Chan has been moving all her life. Originally from Malaysia, she was raised in Hong Kong and Singapore, studied English literature in Scotland and New York, and finally interior design at Parsons. This itinerant lifestyle is why the founder of Bartleby Objects strongly believes that “the things we keep and value ought to meet multiple forms of good.” Creating personal objects that are both beautiful and useful is a principle that informs all Mary’s handmade designs, from her cutting/serving boards to her Dopp kit/purse.

In addition, part of the appeal of all Bartleby designs is their restraint. From leather goods to knits, for inspiration Mary appears to look no further that the materials themselves. By performing only the most minimal of interventions, her designs seem only to enhance the natural form.
