Pink Essay is a creative studio exploring the past, present, and future of furniture, object, and interior design.

We explore design through
  • Curating work by upcoming and established designers
  • Crafting capsule collections and products that expand our ideas about the design world
  • Collaborating with brands seeking to get into the furniture game

We aim to make design accessible and interesting for those inside and outside the industry, thinking about how things might be done differently.

Design shouldn’t take itself too seriously - let’s enjoy the ride~

Pink Essay x EPOCH

We collaborated with design studio EPOCH on a process-centric design conversation, in which we asked questions and EPOCH answered.

EPOCH then transformed the conversation into a physical capsule collection, including a tshirt, beach towel, and bandana.

Each piece contained a component of the conversation, communicated in words and symbols, and linking back to the master interview through QR code.

✿ Chair Chain ✿
Pink Essay x Lane Walkup

We collaborated with designer and artist Lane Walkup on a silver charm necklace inspired by her sheer chair sculptures - a 1'' sterling silver chair with a 17'' sterling silver chain.

15% of every necklace purchase was donated to Coalition for the Homeless, providing a wide array of services, including a furniture bank that provides furniture and other household necessities for newly-housed families and individuals.

OPEN STUDIO featured on AD’s Clever blog: “It's a challenging time to be a student right now as the important elements of in-person interactions are canceled or limited. Add in an art school element where openings and physical events are critical, and the struggle only increases. So late last month when Open Studio Volume 1 debuted, we felt some hope in the air.”
