Sarah & Sebastian Studio
Sarah & Sebastian is by design duo and husband-and-wife team Robert Sebastian Grynkofki and Sarah Gittoes.
The pair has been creating work together since 2011 and in 2015 moved into an industrial warehouse space in Alexandria.
All the hallmarks of a warehouse conversion are there, from polished concrete floors to exposed steel beams. Colossal windows fill the space with light; the frames were imported from Scandinavia. Unique touches from the designers speak of the duo’s aesthetic of balance and simplicity, like the set of charcoal Walter Knoll chairs that soften the entry to the showroom space.
Precision lies at the heart of the Sarah & Sebastian label. Each delicate, intricately formed piece is made by hand, then critiqued and considered by the tight-knit design team.
M is the duo’s first men’s collection – it is understated and refined.
Clean lines and faultless construction result in items that feel effortless and luxurious.
Separating the retail space from production is a living wall called the iPot, designed by Supercake in Milan, dotted with philodendrons. In the studio, the walls feature imagery from past collections shot by Michael Naumoff. A jeweller’s bench made by Gittoes’s dad sits among more modern workbenches.
