Fort Standard is dedicated to the craft of lasting design for the home. Embedded within each object is the belief that the most effective approach to longevity is producing timeless design at the highest level of quality possible. Each piece possesses a material permanence that will last generations.
Founder and designer, Gregory Buntain, continuously aspires to achieve a harmony of utility and beauty in each object. Inspiration comes from the quotidian and the aspirational by identifying small moments of intrigue and extracting unique design opportunities from them. A small observation, like the slight color difference between two metal alloys, or delving into the inherent qualities of a natural material can open a channel that acts as the catalyst for innovation in the design process.
New York City has served as a pillar for the studio, as a point of inspiration, community, and where the production shop maintains its permanent roots. For over twelve years, the company has maintained an elevated design vision for everything they create, and where they have full control of every aspect of production within the made-to-order facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Fort Standard collaborates with clients throughout the US and globally to cater to the bespoke needs of the modern home. Each piece is meant to be lived with. Some of the core collections of the studio, Strata, Column, and Cooperage, represent the sustaining tenets of the studio—each built through exploration and refined with time.
Leading with design, Fort Standard maintains a sense of thoughtfulness and intentionality in every piece produced.
