Welcome to 57st. design!

57st. design

We’re thrilled to be here. We’re a Chicago-based design studio + brand specializing in contemporary-modern furniture. We also do custom work, interiors (residential + commercial), and contract industrial design. We’ve been working hard to put together an inaugural collection of work that we feel reflects our particular approach to design and we’re excited to--finally--be able to share it with you.

Our work draws inspiration from an eclectic collection of design traditions: we’re parts Mid-century modern, traditional American woodworking, Scandinavian minimalism, and Shaker, among others. You’ll notice a few consistent elements across our work. For one-- we’re particular about American hardwoods. Also, we like to finish our work by hand (for reasons as much aesthetic as practical-- hand-finished wood is gorgeous, and can be repaired + touched up with minimal fuss). We want our work to be strong and durable. We want our work to be accessible. We want our work to delight.

We believe simple principles and honest execution will yield great design. And we’re proud to design + manufacture our work in Chicago.

Reach out to us with any questions or comments-- or even if you just want to chat design! We love hearing from you; whether you’re a customer, a designer, or just someone who’s enthusiastic about design, we want to know what you’re thinking!
