Stewart/Stand is made up of three designers and strives to combine sophisticated design and packaging with unique materials and functional objects.
Theo received his Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from The Cooper Union in New York City. His major was graphic design, but he always wanted to explore and design three-dimensional forms. "I like to recreate pre-existing functional objects. In some ways it is like being a chef with durable products." If he weren't a designer, he would be an engineer.
Theo's brother Paul received his Bachelor's degree in Economics from Union College and a Master's degree from the London School of Economics. Paul has an entrepreneurship spirit and would be a scholar if he wasn't in the design biz.
Penelope Mahot is a French-American still life photographer. She graduated from Parsons School of Design with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in photography. She oversees the visual concepts of Stewart/Stand and is responsible for day to day operations.
