About us

We are three things; a design studio, a wholesaler and a store.

Our focus is on the very essence of collaboration and the challenges posed by cultural retailing. Everything that comes out of Third Drawer Down Studio bears the hallmarks of artistic integrity and functionality.

Established in 2003, our studio has collaborated with over 150 contemporary artists to create licensed objects for everyday use. Some of our collaborations thus far, include Louise Bourgeois, Ai Weiwei and David Shrigley. Our extensive range of licensed objects are available in leading design and museum stores around the world. If you are interested in becoming a stockist please head here.

By 2006, the studio began making bespoke products for such prestigious institutions as the Tate, MoMA and Whitney. This point represented the realisation of the studio’s vision to bridge the gap between artists, the cultural institutions that represent them and ultimately to extend the artist’s story in a sensitive yet commercial manner.

We are  always open to talking about collaborations that you have in the pipeline or simply having a chat about an idea that is just taking form. The design, licensing and distribution of bespoke cultural products is in our blood. This site showcases more than 10 years of where our studio has come from and we hope that you’ll be a part of where we’re going.
