when we travelled to NYC back in 2013, on our honeymoon, we went to a furniture fair somewhere in Brooklyn (i forget the name now) and that is where i first saw the work of Bower. i remember loving their work so much that i took their business card, so it’s been really cool for me to keep track of them since then. they make these awesome shape mirrors – the arch is my favourite (pictured above) – as well as interesting furniture and beautiful lighting.
Bower is a contemporary design studio based in New York City founded by Danny Giannella and Tammer Hijazi in 2013. Through a free experimental design process they bring unique and unexpected objects into people’s lives. Tammer and Danny love finding intriguing characteristics in anything from plants and animals, to toys from their childhood and dreaming up completely different functional applications for them, often ending up with delightfully surprising results. This process is their happy place, experimenting and exploring a detail that has caught their interest without being sure how it will manifest itself in the end. The spirit of discovery in Danny and Tammer’s process lives though their objects and is felt when people engage with a Bower design.
