Swid Powell

The design work of the firm, exclusive of buildings, has evolved from a fascination with the relationship between the diminutive and the inhabitable, and the ambiguities resulting from such discrepancies of scale.  This fascination further extends to ruminations on the nature of decorative arts design and its relationship to architecture in any given epoch.  Architecture is present in all of the china, flatware, decorative objects, and household accessories created for Swid Powell. 

A tea service, sugar and creamer, salt and pepper shakers, candlesticks, bed linens and baby accessories are among the many types of housewares studied and executed for manufacture and production.
