Our background in the fine arts provides a rubric that is abstract and broad, with few limiting constraints to the imagination. We discover, observe, and submit our design exploration to a space’s history and DNA. We marry that with the current purpose, intent on serving today’s individuals and community. The end result is filled with experimentation of textures, visual exploration, and celebration of the human experience; all while honoring and elevating the unique character of the building, space, and site.
We seek out compatible and contrasting inputs from a broad universe of cultural references. Art, fashion, found items, furniture, literature, and two-dimensional design reference images complement the character of the raw space while nudging the observer delicately towards a purposeful and intentional human experience. Completing a project is only possible when all experiential elements align to serve the space’s declared human and communal purpose.
Based in Pittsburgh, Studio Lithe’s projects span across the country from PA to MN to AZ.
When Studio Lithe was formed, we sought to find a home base that felt true to our core values. Hospitality is central to our ethos and when we stumbled upon this studio space it became apparent that it could be more than just an office but a true opportunity to share what we love through creating a thoughtfully curated environment, highlighting furniture and art that we are excited about, hosting pop up events, cooking elaborate dinners, and throwing an occasional dance party complete with disco ball. We were also excited to have enough space to provide other creative friends across disciplines a place to use on occasion or to call home as well. The space has become an extension of our vision in ways that we could not anticipate and we continue to daydream about the possibilities of the future.
