Since its founding in 2010, Ravenhill Studio has explored material, function, and manufacturing methods to create a body of work that we hope you love. Our products are devoid of excess and ornament, striving for a logical celebration of physics, material and craft. We are inspired to create in a world already full of things because we believe that well designed objects embody original ideas. We find great reward in making thoughtful work and we’re proud to build all of our pieces in the USA. Meet our team below.

Our Los Angeles Studio is located in a historic 15,000+ square foot structure that was once a Capitol Records pressing plant, putting out vinyl from the Beatles, Beach Boys, Nat King Cole, and more. Originally the building was a c. 1923 lumber shed, expanded with a streamline moderne addition by the Hemphill Diesel Engineering School in 1936. The front of the building still features an Art Deco frieze that pays homage to diesel engines.

During childhood years in Cote d’Ivoire and summers in coastal Maine, Brendan fell in love with the functional beauty of working tools and wooden boats. His father once curated a Smithsonian exhibition called the Art of the Personal Object, sparking Brendan's long-held interest in the objects in our lives. Brendan received a Sculpture degree from Oberlin College in 2001 and a Masters in Industrial Design from RISD in 2009.
Brendan established the Studio in 2010 to create products that have meaning beyond aesthetics and trend. Since its founding the Studio has grown to 20 talented humans working out of the Studio's 17,000 square foot building in the Glassell Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
