Overview

Souda was founded in the summer of 2012 by recent graduates of Parsons School of Design. Consisting of the collaborative work of Isaac Friedman-Heiman, Shaun Kasperbauer, and Luft Tanaka, Souda designs and manufactures furniture, lighting, and home decor items in New York City. By combining in-house production with components produced by local machinists, woodworkers, and metal shops, Souda's objects are as uniquely expressive as they are finely crafted. Souda (pronounced "soh-duh") is a Japanese word that roughly translates to "Oh, yeah!"
