In 2013 at the Design Miami Basel an unlikely pair came together to create what is still today our favorite booth ever at the fair. Steinitz founded in Paris in 1968 is known for its museum quality antiques from the 17th and 18th century. Their furniture is predominantly classic french and is grand and opulent. While London based Carpenters Workshop is a contemporary design gallery that is constantly pushing the boundaries. They represent artists that design furniture and objects on the edge of controversial.
These two Steinitz and Carpenters Workshop came together and created an outstanding booth, modeled after a Paris apartment. We cant get enough of the combination of traditional and cutting edge. Enjoy!
