Brooklyn SlaB, Custom Furniture and Fabrication Studio.
Brand’s Overview / Information :
Founded and owned by Shannon L. Bowser, Brooklyn SLaB LLC is a custom furniture and fabrication studio located in Red Hook, Brooklyn. BK SLaB specializes in distinctive accent pieces designed for the compact spaces of a contemporary urban lifestyle. Combining choice pieces of solid and reclaimed wood with highly figured veneers and intricate surface detailing, each piece is a hybrid of contemporary modernism and traditional decorative arts.
Having a background in fine art and sculpture, Shannon formed Brooklyn SLaB to pursue her passion for fine woodworking and to translate her artistic influences into functional design. She merges structured architectural forms with random patterns found in nature, while allowing the layered history of the wood to show through. Each one-of-a-kind piece embraces and highlights the unique characteristics of its materials.
In addition to building original furniture, Shannon has over 20 years of experience working with clients to design and fabricate their custom projects. She has a BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA, and is the recipient of a 2014 Studio Residency at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine. She was selected to participate in BKLYN DESIGNS 2014, New York’s internationally renowned juried exhibition of Brooklyn designers, and was a finalist for the 2014 Inhabitat BKLYN Designs Reader’s Choice Award.
