The collection was photographed at the home of Catherine Gertner and Nathan Bruckner. The recent husband and wife designed and renovated this financial district apartment inside a converted 1930s office building. The simple, harmonious proportions and the maximized efficiency of the limited space was inspired by the philosophy and designs of Le Corbusier and belgian designer Axel Vervoordt.

 

WorkOf x Architonic – Light + Ladder

In a sun-filled loft on the Greenpoint waterfront, Farrah Sit and her team are quietly building the business that she always aspired to work at. This required a decisive returning to making and culminated with the launch of her eponymous brand Light + Ladder.

In an understated, sun-filled loft on the Greenpoint waterfront, Farrah Sit and her team are quietly building the business that she always aspired to work at. Having spent years designing for the home in fashion Farrah had “not only lost interest, but also began questioning why I was designing in the first place.” The road to answering this question required a decisive returning to making and culminated with the launch of her eponymous brand Light + Ladder.

Wall Hooks

Our Favorites: Parallax Wall Hooks

Intending to blend storage and decoration by designing sculptural wall hooks that look like little art pieces along a wall, we chose three great shapes—square, round and hexagon in brass. We hid functionality by removing “the hook” and instead designing the shapes to display at a 60-degree upward angle. The shapes’ small statures preserve their art-like attributes while the angle makes them highly effective in preventing even bulky items, like coats and bath towels, from slipping off. See the many ways weve put them to use.
