Time Square Design Lab (TSqDL), is an inaugural activation that will bring new ideas for public space onto the plaza during this year’s celebration of NYCxDesign. The program will focus on innovations in public space furnishing. Hive Public Space will be designing a Bookcase with integrated seating that will live next to the Strand Bookstore in Times Square.
Workstead is a design studio that focuses on buildings, interiors, and products. Our lighting and furniture collections are a natural extension of the studio's interest in utility, form, and material strength. Our products are functional and iconic, balancing a dialogue between past and present. They cast a new light on durable and time-tested materials - steel, wood, leather, cast iron, brass, aluminum, and porcelain - through a careful interpretation of forms and their embedded sculptural functions. Minimal in spirit, but flexible in use, the collections can be found in shops, restaurants, hotels, and residences all over the world.
To produce our lighting and furniture collections, we have collaborated with a network of independent and established American manufacturers. Each UL-listed light fixture is made and assembled by hand and comes with a robust guarantee.
