Egg Collective, named “Best New Designer” this spring at the 2012 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), is an all female - Brooklyn-based - design company committed to building American-made furniture.
The 2012 collection balances hard geometric forms, delicate proportions, and natural materials.
The designers were inspired by, “rocks, flow- ers, quarries, a particular picture of a fawn, as well as the use of materials and detailing in traditional furniture.” Egg Collectives’s inaugural collec- tion weaves together simple yet sculptural elements, with rich materials and impeccable craft.

Of their process, the founders say: “Because we handcraft many of our designs, we are strongly invested in the construction and detailing of our work. Craftsmanship is integral to what we what do, and something that we are not willing to compromise. “
