Industrial design studio, Fort Standard, produce beautiful, contemporary products and furniture. It is the ethos of founders, Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings, to produce ‘smarter products that exemplify an understanding of materials and the balance between form and function.’

Despite, the simple, minimal aesthetic, this studio is all about the careful detail. From the curve of the coffee table edge to the geometric, brass bottle opener, Fort Standard are all about working with their materials, not against them. By manufacturing the products themselves, Buntain and Collings are able to understand how the materials work and therefore create more sophisticated design.

Based in New York but with stockists all over the world, Fort Standard are bringing an appreciation of natural resources and considerate, innovative design into your home.
