WHO WE ARE
Workstead is a multidisciplinary studio celebrated by the AD100 as a global leader in design. From our Brooklyn office, more than 15 professionals create one-of-a-kind buildings and interiors that are comprehensive in vision and exacting in detail. Our Connecticut-based lighting studio is trusted by consumers and designers as a source of evocative luminaires, crafted in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. In small- and large-scale work alike, Workstead employs a disciplined design process that melds precedent, modern form, and honest construction. Representing both familiarity and reinvention, our work resonates with individual clients and commercial audiences over years of use.
WHAT WE DO
Workstead creates residences, hospitality destinations, and real estate developments. Our Brooklyn-based building and interiors practice champions genuine connections to history and landscape. A human-centered approach to the design process also ensures that projects possess an empathy and functionality that surpass expectations and stand the test of time—they are places of beauty and necessity.
Our Connecticut-based lighting studio takes a threefold approach to design excellence in our product line as well as custom works. As sources of illumination, visual statements, and interactive objects, Workstead luminaires embody utility, restraint, and tactility. In our aim for longevity in design and fabrication, it is the emotional relationship between a light fixture and its user that distinguishes an heirloom from a mere commodity.
Both of Workstead’s design practices are dedicated to breaking new creative ground with meticulous execution. In turn, our architects of record, engineers, and craftspeople are trusted collaborators, and we welcome inquiries from new clients who believe that a project may also be a contribution to culture.
