Handcrafted bespoke furniture designed in Brooklyn and made in America.

Forces at Play team members


After years of experience designing homes, restaurants, and hotels separately, three friends reunite to fulfill a dream of designing together.  Based in Brooklyn, they collaborated with local workshops to develop furniture at the highest level of quality.  Forces at Play’s debut collection iterates on implied motion and tension in static form.  The result is a sophisticated, playful, and sculptural design language that dips one toe each in the familiar and experimental.
