Hunter Craighill designs elevated items meant for everyday use. After studying to be an architect, his career turned to graphic and product design. He spent several years working closely with historic American manufacturers on behalf of an outdoor lifestyle brand before partnering with a childhood friend, Steve Gavula. Their products encompass a wide range of materials and functions, unified by a design philosophy that marries efficiency and exploration. Their primary creative drivers are personal curiosity, industrial experimentation, and basic utility. They strive for honest and precise manufacturing, much of which occurs in their New York studio. It's their belief that a well designed product should be perfectly functional, and also tell a story about its creation and potential.
