About Studio Seitz
Founded in 2018, Seitz is a New York-based design studio—driven by the past and refined for today. Along with their lineage of Swiss makers, the studio builds upon fading traditions through a timeless, yet distinctly modern furniture and home collection. With family craftsmanship dating back to 1795, co-founders Kevin Seitz and Rob van Wyen combine the best of Swiss precision, traditional craftsmanship and quality sustainable materials with a modern and tactile simplicity. From their archetypal alpine bench to the streamlined dresser with stately brass pulls and the faceted reversible candleholders and tilting teapot—every Studio Seitz heirloom is handmade-to-order and, therefore, one-of-a-kind. Studio Seitz produces clever and beautiful pieces melding past and present to make the future perfect.
The studio’s newest release, a wall mirror has a silhouette inspired by deconstructing a classic Fahreimer (Alpine milking pail), and stripping it back to its essence. Made from FSC-certified solid European ash, the mirror comes in a natural or ebonized finish. At first glance, the mirror may appear to be simple and modern but the frame reveals the handiwork of a dying craft in Switzerland—dating back to the 18th century.
Studio Seitz will open their first live/work showroom (late summer/fall) to highlight how its pieces fit into daily life. Located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn inside of a converted Babka Factory, built in 1910, the showroom will highlight their products as well as Swiss and Danish brands/artists that inspire them, such as Sonnhild Kestler textiles, Swiss historic graphic design prints, VIPP, and Ferm Living.
Additionally, late summer/fall, the studio will introduce their new collection “Fold” (an innovative new line where all pieces are cut from one sheet of aluminum and then folded to create the 3d form).
