Architecture, Lighting and Furniture Design
AlexAllen Studio was founded in 2013 by Alexandra Burr and Allen Slamic. Based in Gowanus, Brooklyn, we work in the fields of lighting design, furniture design and architecture.
Finding Balance and Proportion
We believe design is about balance, proportion and refinement. We look for the fine line between richness and restraint, minimalism and tactility, austerity and ornament. We feel innovation should also be sensitive to vernacular and tradition.
Material and process driven approach
We are constantly exploring new manufacturing methods, technology and materials to make our design smarter, more sustainable, more efficient or more accessible.
Our services include architectural design, interior design, custom lighting and custom furniture design.
