Founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings, Fort Standard is an industrial design studio based in Brooklyn, New York. The pair met at Pratt Institute and shared an experience studying at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. Butain’s and Collings’ work is a result of an ever-evolving dialogue between their unique perspectives and shared approach to design and its processes. They work with long-lasting natural materials and employ traditional production methods in new and innovative ways. Fort Standard produces a variety of products, including home goods, toys, jewelry and furniture. As a studio, their goal is to produce unique pieces that adhere to what they describe as a signature “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.
