We are Fort Standard, a furniture and product design studio based in Brooklyn, NY. Earlier this spring we launched a new line of furniture and lighting as part of the NOHO Design District during NY design week. We recently updated our website with a fresh new look and would love for you to check it out!
Standard “sprue” or “gating wax”, normally used to direct the flow of molten metal in investment casting was used to create the actual forms of these functional Bronze table sculptures. Striping the idea of casting down to a primitive level there remains a strong connection to the materiality of the wax and a rough look and feel to them due to minimal clean up after the casting. Available through Matter.
