2014 COLLECTION


Let the beauty we love, be what we do. - Rumi

Graypants is a team of problem solvers. Anchored in Seattle and Amsterdam, graypants’ bold creativity leads to diverse designs in products, architecture, and other beautiful objects around the world. Our work expands globally with collaborations and custom designs for leading companies worldwide. Starting out in Seattle as architects, founders Seth and Jon decided to further feed their creative appetites through product design and art exhibitions. In 2007, “graypants” was scribbled onto a piece of paper and the new company’s flagship line of pendant lights made entirely of repurposed corrugated cardboard – scraplights – was promptly introduced. Scraplights quickly became a prime example of the principles that graypants embodies to this day – responsible design, responsible materials, responsible production… and having fun. In 2012, the Amsterdam studio was founded to become a hub for local European production and distribution to over forty countries, and has partnered

with social works programs to provide craft-based job opportunities where it's needed most. The Seattle studio provides local production for North America and houses the bustling custom and prototyping shop. Today, graypants continues to expand its custom portfolio from architectural installations to public artworks, and has numerous product lines sold throughout the world. The range of their work is comprehensive, covering residential and commercial lighting, furniture, packaging designs, and architecture. In November of 2013, graypants was awarded AIA Seattle’s Award of Honor for their debut architecture project, Garage.

We believe the variety in our work has made us better at all aspects of it – whether it be launching a new product line, fabricating a custom installation, or working intimately with clients to create something unique. Product Design

Custom Shop

Architecture

Graypants began as an industrial design studio, and product design and development continues to be a main focus. Through our expanding range of lighting and furnishings, we’ve developed a worldwide distribution network for both retail and business markets. It’s also allowed us to engage deeply in developing local, responsible, and sustainable production methods.

We’re constantly asked if we can make something unique, and we love to say “yes!”. Yes – we create custom-shaped lights, huge lights out of almost any material, sculptural acoustic and architectural panel systems, product packaging designs, and a whole lot more. Have or need an idea? Let us know! Our Seattle studio doubles as our custom and prototyping shop.

Architectural design is engrained in our DNA. The studio was founded by practicing architects, after all. Since the beginning, this has encouraged a collaborative approach and has strongly influenced the process behind all of our designs. We actively develop conceptual ideas, collaborate on special aspects of projects, and of course work intimately with clients to create extraordinary buildings.

flexible, in more ways than one

Inspired by tried and true handcrafting techniques, the Kerflight series is precision built to accommodate any situation. Powder coated steel frames provide a distinct shape and character for each lamp, while the unique kerf pattern of the shade panels cast intriguing patterns onto walls and table surfaces. Debuting with interchangeable and reversible shade panels available in multiple colors — and five distinct personalities — Graypants’ Kerflights will make a great fit.
