Heritage brought to the modern home
Seitz is a New York-based design studio—driven by the past, refined for today. Along with their lineage of Swiss makers, the studio seeks to revitalize art forms that are quickly fading away. The passion and care from their family of craftsmen instills the honesty that cannot be replicated in mass manufacturing. It's this commitment that allows for the preservation and modern interpretation of functional and heirloom furniture—built to last.
The inaugural collection introduces five pieces into the modern home—partnering with master craftsmen whose unparalleled passion is passed down from generation to generation within the cantons of Appenzell and Sankt Gallen, Switzerland.
This solid ash dresser is an expression of modernizing traditional forms found in classic Swiss Alpine furniture. Brass pulls, each uniquely hand stamped in Appenzell, adorn the soft-closing drawers.
The Stabellenbank, or stable bench, is a modern interpretation of a Swiss classic—widely foundin homes, farms and taverns across Switzerland. It is held together by four hand-turned legs and strong joinery, made from solid European ash.
The Stabellenbank’s legs are dovetailed into a solid woodenseat without the use of nails. Any weight applied to the seat gains extra stability through the slanted legs, spread apart. This interaction of forcesprovides long lasting durability.
Limen is a handcrafted heirloom teapot—nuanced by the techniques of Bernecker Bauernkeramik, motifs found in Chinese porcelain and organic forms inspired by human gesture.
Layers of concentric glass shades make up this airy pendant light. Each shade is lightly frosted and individually cut with heritage patterns—inspired by local Swiss ceramics.
The Napfständer is a raised flat-packfeeder for the family hound—incorporating an aluminum tray with a recycled cork insert to hold two stoneware bowls in place. The tray slides into a base thatcan adjust to three heights.
