SABO project is a Brooklyn-based design office investigating the fields of architecture, furniture design, set design, installations and environmental strategies. Through an optimistic sabo(tage) of each project substance, our practice aims to identify unexpected means of contemporary relevance. The office focuses on the design of places where one can act differently and perhaps think differently.
Our approach seamlessly bridges the way things are designed and the way they are made, combining cues from industry and craft. To achieve that we reinterpret old archetypes into an honest design and construction language. We reuse traditional techniques and joinery to create strong moments and connections. The result is work with personality, function and purpose. In practice, our pieces provide many expressive “windows” through which the user enters.

Focusing on the USA market, at the April show of EX・TRACTS 2001 in New York, we launched and introduced our original brand, " DEAR PEAR " collection for bath and home fragrance along with our selection of the imported items mainly from Japan. We were delighted to be selected as among the finalists to be nominated for "Best Overall Products Award" at our first debut EX.TRACTS show.
And then we had our first Accent on Design Show in the New York Gift Fair in January, 2002 and received fabulous responses from the buyers and press.
