Robert Sukrachand is a New York City based furniture designer. Since launching his first collection in 2015 Robert has created mixed material works that blend divergent influences and draw from his background in photography and traditional wood craft.
Growing up in Massachusetts but spending his summers in his father's native Thailand, Robert has always sought energy from the liminal spaces where boundaries are blurred and translation is a necessity. The same can be said of his design practice which at its core seeks to create a dialogue between craft disciplines, cultural histories, and material forms. Mirrors are made three-dimensional and sculptural; fabrics used in unconventional ways to bring tactility to otherwise cold forms; volume and reflection are suggested through a geometric interplay of glass and wood.
Robert’s studio is located in a shared workshop within a brick warehouse along the Red Hook waterfront - itself a microcosm of the thriving and diverse New York City design community that the studio draws creative energy from. We count other woodworkers, metal workers, glass fabricators, upholsterers, and finishers as friends and frequent collaborators. This synergy is critical to the timely execution of our projects to the highest possible standard.
Robert’s work is frequently featured in such publications as Interior Design, The New York Times Style Magazine, Sight Unseen, and Design Milk, among others. Please refer to our PRESS section for full articles.
