Design Week in New York was marked by the opening of a new showroom Egg Collective. The showroom is located on the ground floor of an 1893 building in Tribeca. The goal of Egg Collective is to become a more accessible brand for both regular customers and visitors.
Egg Collective is a women’s company in the sense that its range is exclusively feminine design. Crystal Ellis, along with partners Stephanie Beamer and Hillary Petrie, founded the company in 2011.
It was conceived as a creative partnership, synthesizing experience in art, architecture, and woodworking. Each Egg Collective item is handcrafted from natural materials that are designed to stand the test of time. This inherent strength extends to every aspect of the company’s operations. All Egg Collective work is made from high-quality raw materials in our own workshop and in collaboration with local small producers.
Beyond a commitment to quality craftsmanship, Egg Collective’s work brings together attention to detail, surface and form. The sculptural design combines elemental forms with timeless materials, including wood, leather, metal, glass, and stone.
The professional architects of the lady made a bet on gender and did not doubt their success at all. For 8 years, the company has spent a lot of energy not only producing furniture but also designing interiors for family members and friends.
Curvilinear partitions, an enfilade of small rooms, corner doorways, complex passages create a complex geometry of space. These shapes are reflected in Egg Collective’s latest pieces of furniture, which the trio designed at the same time as the showroom. There are architectural details in the room that led to furniture solutions and vice versa. They have the same language. From the sectional sofa and low cabinet to the Martie coffee table and writing desk (named after Petri’s young daughter).
