Fort Standard, ‘Balancing Blocks’, 2011, CMA: Benefit Auction 2016

Fort Standard is a NYC based contemporary design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is a manifestation of their shared vision and progressive design approach, which pairs timeless materials with modern process. Often using traditional methods of production in innovative ways, the designers have developed a unique form language rooted in simplicity and functionality. Their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.
