Silva/Bradshaw

If you haven’t found design studio Silva/Bradshaw yet – the time has come! Silva/Bradshaw is the Brooklyn brainchild of long-time pals Matthew Bradshaw and Sergio Silva. The pair met at NY’s Pratt Institute where they were both students of Industrial Design. In 2010, they began collaborating on pieces like furniture for high end retail spaces. Everything out of the studio is conceptually driven, and I’m taken with the curves. Despite the striking variety, there is a cohesive, simple aesthetic running through every collection.

To access a wider audience, the pair translated their conceptual theory to a line of rings. Each approaches the circle from a bit of a different angle, and they are made in a variety of materials – from blackened brass to 3D printed nylon.

My favorite collection is “Tools,” which the pair describe as “a series of simple, anonymous shapes that look like they should do something.” Sold.
