Hellman-Chang’s 8,000-sq.-ft. studio in Brooklyn

A rendering of the duo’s first chair prototype

Since then, the company’s offerings have grown to include 12 lines of solid wood tables and case goods, including bookshelves, a bed frame and cocktail, side and dining tables. Each piece is sourced and made in New York, with solid wood construction and rich nishes including ebonized walnut and granite oak. Mixed materials, such as Starphire glass, brushed

steel and Swarovski crystals, are also incorporated into the furniture pieces. The Hellman-Chang aesthetic stems from its founders’ roles as both designers and craftsmen. “A new line might be formed because we can see the piece evolve as we build it,” says Hellman, 30. “Maintaining this hands-on approach makes for an intimate design/build process that allows our true design voice to be heard.” Hellman and Chang employ six additional artisans: four in the workshop, and two in the design studio. They produce the

company’s furniture lines in an 8,000-sq.-ft. Brooklyn warehouse that has what Chang describes as a “vintage woodshop vibe” and includes storage units with reclaimed barn wood doors and antique casement windows. Inside, the shop is divided into four zones: a showroom/loading dock; bench space for hand detailing, joining and nishing work; an industrial machinery room; and 2,500 sq. ft. of co-op space for rent. Roughly 65 ordered pieces are in production at any given time, but that number can vary greatly based on product size and scope. The company’s furniture is sold at designer showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Seattle and Dania Beach, Fla. Hellman-Chang is currently developing its rst chair prototype and designing a loveseat, along with lighting and atware collaborations. The idea, Chang unabashedly says, is to “bring something new, refreshing and timeless to the world.” So far, things have moved at warp speed for these young craftsmen, and they continue on with plans to expand their line and double their work space. “We still have a tremendous journey ahead of us,” Hellman says, “but looking back on our successes is what drives us forward.” BD
