SHAPE studio


SHAPE studio

is a design and fabrication business based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, specializing in high end and custom architectural metalwork and furniture for residential and commercial clients. Founded by J McDonald in 2012, SHAPE studio has grown by continuously shattering the industry's expectations for fabrication in both quality and reliability. Trained in architecture at Middlebury College, and in fabrication during a long tenure at Serett metalworks, J brings a unique sensibility and attention to detail that differentiates SHAPE studio from the slurry of sub par fabrication shops that haunt New York's streets and drive even the most hardened designers, contractors and homeowners into fits of despair.  Chris Bido, one of the most respected fabricators in the industry, joined SHAPE Studio in 2015, allowing the company to grow while maintaining its dedication to thoughtful and finely crafted objects and spaces.                            See the difference, SHAPE your world.
