The philosophy of SENTIENT Furniture is found in the name. The word ‘sentient’ is defined as ‘the power of perception by sensation and consciousness’. In one way or another our intention is to reach or alert our customers consciousness. We want our designs and products to be thought-provoking, curious, interesting and at times out-of-the-blue. The goal is to provoke a reaction. If a customer or observer comments, questions or asks for more information we have succeeded.
We strive to infuse artistic ideas and thoughts into our work. If a piece is going to be in your home and you are living with it everyday, then we feel we have responsibility to try to offer something a little different: perhaps in the juxtiposition of materials or shapes or colors. Whatever we include, it might not be the obvious choice but might result in something unique and truly special.
At SENTIENT our drive is that each chair, table, credenza or bed that we create should be a strong statement of design. To us an object should awaken a sense even if its only to provoke a question. We try to add a little something so our collections and custom items are often perceived as art objects.
At SENTIENT our designers and fabricators have decades of experience working for many luxury brands including the high end signature retail industry, major airline first class lounge furnishings and installations for premium hotel brands. In addition we regularly work for many world renowned architect and design firms.
SENTIENT is a New York City based furniture and objects design and fabrication company. All SENTIENT furniture and objects are conceived, designed and manufactured in our 25,000 square feet workshops located in Brooklyn, New York.
