BOTH SUCCESSFUL MULTI-HYPHENATES, THEIR UNIQUE SKILLS AND VISION BROUGHT THEM FROM OUT WEST IN THEIR HOME STATE, UTAH, TO NEW YORK CITY TO START THEIR OWN CREATIVE STUDIO. DRIVEN BY THE DESIRE TO CONNECT HUMANS WITH DESIGN, ASTRAEUS CLARKE’S LIGHTING COLLECTIONS BEGIN WITH A PERSONAL STORY. EACH LIGHT FIXTURE COMBINES SIMPLE GEOMETRY WITH UNEXPECTED FUNCTIONALITY, ALL WITH THE INTENTION OF ALLOWING THE USER TO HAVE MOMENTS OF CONNECTIVE INTERACTION WITH THE DESIGN.

LED BY JACOB AND CHELSIE, THE MANUFACTURING TEAM HANDCRAFTS EACH CUSTOMIZED PIECE TO ORDER IN AN EXPERIENCED AND SKILLED PROCESS. ALL ASTRAEUS CLARKE PIECES ARE HANDMADE IN BROOKLYN.
