APPARATUS, a New York-based design studio, explores the relationship between lighting, furniture, and objects in immersive environments, connecting the historical and cultural through a contemporary lens. Gabriel Hendifar, the creative director, approaches the work as a narrative, using a lexicon of desire and emotional response. The studio is an ever-evolving articulation of considered spaces and the things that dwell within them, inspired by the modernist notion of a complete work of art. Each sculptural piece is hand-finished and assembled in a historic New York space that houses the gallery, development, and production, following a legacy of studio craftsmanship.
