Workstead is a design firm founded in 2009 by Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Andrew Highsmith. They were joined by Ryan Mahoney, also a graduate of the RISD Architecture program, in 2010. They focus on architectural and interior design, lighting, furniture, and exhibitions. Workstead’s aim is to design responsible works that create a sense of place for both the objects they contain and the people that experience them. Their palette is strong and rich, yet simple and efficient.
