When the multidisciplinary design studio Workshop/APD first partnered with Desiron, an industry favorite for handcrafted furniture, the collection catered to oft-overlooked perimeter spaces: a two-piece debut of a console and bench probed the construct of spatial composition and balance with a nod to sculptural asymmetry. Their newly released follow-up collection consists of six pieces, each embracing their rightfully earned place at the center of the room—and attention.
The collection was at least partially inspired by today’s evolving focus on domestic spaces and the undisputed importance of function. “Gone are the days of an untouched living room,” Workshop/APD associate principal Andrew Kline told Surface.
The sophomore launch includes a dining table, dining chair, coffee table, side table, spot table, and cocktail table, each of which builds upon themes explored in the preceding collection. “We love exploring the connections between forms, materials, masses, and rooms,” Kline says. “A crisp, elegant reveal is one of our favorite architectural elements and adds to a design by taking something away, bringing lightness and modernity to the space.”
