Workstead is a design studio, founded in 2009 by Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Highsmith. Their studios are located in Brooklyn New York and the Hudson Valley, where they focus on architectural and interior design, lighting, furniture, and exhibitions.
Workstead's aim is to design responsible works that create a sense of place for both the objects they contain and the people that experience them. Their palette is strong and rich, yet simple and efficient.
In 2012, Workstead designed the public spaces for the highly acclaimed Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. Workstead currently has projects in New York, Connecticut, Oklahoma, and California. The studio's lighting is sold through their online store, and through shops in New York City and Los Angeles. Their installations can be found in the collections of Barneys, Facebook, Levi's, Google, Yelp, the Harpoon Brewery, and in private residences all over the world.
