De­sign Show in New York. “It was the first show we ever did. It or­gan­i­cally got a lot of press, and de­sign­ers and deal­ers both started call­ing us after that.” in­spired by Kazuyo Se­jima, Eileen Gray, Pa­tri­cia Urquiola, Faye Too­good and Maria Pergay. clients in­clude San­dra Wein­gort, J Crew, El­iz­a­beth Roberts Ar­chi­tec­ture & De­sign. cur­rently work­ing on a light­ing col­lec­tion — part of the duo’s Flow col­lec­tion, which de­buted at ICFF ear­lier this year — made with slump sand­blasted opal glass and pow­der coated alu­minum. what’s next? A line of small ob­jects for a pop-up at down­town LA re­tail space Poketo. they say “Our fur­ni­ture has been de­scribed as ‘sculp­tural’ and ‘Bru­tal­ist’, and per­haps that’s the re­flec­tion of the big in­flu­ence art and ar­chi­tec­ture has on us.” we say Es­tu­dio Per­sona are re­shap­ing the way we look at South Amer­i­can de­sign by fus­ing its sculp­tural play­ful­ness with the warm, func­tional, con­tem­po­rary aes­thetic of LA.
