Robert Sukrachand is a New York City based furniture designer. Drawing from his background in photography and traditional wood craft, Robert's designs explore geometry, volume, and reflection in unexpected ways. Employing novel material and color combinations, he seeks to create dynamic objects that remain in motion as the viewer engages them.
After graduating from New York University with a degree in Photography in 2008, Robert began building furniture in his free time. Several years of experimentation ensued and he launched his first collection at Bklyn Designs in 2015. As a photographer he sought to craft images that were complex but also succinct. His approach to design maintains a similar focus - to produce objects that are thoughtful without being overwrought. Robert's work is inspired by geometric abstraction, classical mathematics, and natural materials.
Robert complements his expertise in woodworking by collaborating with local artisans in a variety of disciplines. All pieces are handcrafted and finished with meticulous attention to detail in our Brooklyn workshop. We choose to use low and no-VOC wood finishes when possible and have experience executing FSC and Living Building Challenge certified projects.
