Home - Designers - Apparatus



Apparatus is a New York based interdisciplinary design studio that explores the relationship of lighting, furniture and objects in their environments. Predicated on the modernist principle of gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art, fully articulated collections reveal individual pieces as artifacts of a holistic world – each referencing the historical and cultural mood summoned by a singular vision.

Founded in 2012, Apparatus is led by artistic director, Gabriel Hendifar and operates galleries in New York and Los Angeles that communicate the studio’s singular design ethos.

Apparatus creates each piece with a devotion to the rigor of small studio craftsmanship, centering the importance of the human hand in lending soul to an object. Sensual materials such as marble, suede, horsehair, lacquer and porcelain are combined with hand-patinated brass in the studio’s dedicated New York factory to create its distinctive catalog.

Apparatus's collections are offered at Triode's Parisian showroom. Please contact our team for information about the availability of a specific product, to discuss your project, or to receive our catalog of fixtures and furniture.
