A Small Studio in the West Loop

Strand Design is a product design studio located in Chicago’s West Loop. In addition to providing design services for clients both big and small, they create beautifully crafted objects from sustainably sourced and locally manufactured materials.

Ted and Sharon Burdett welcomed Practice & Space into their studio to glimpse at their process and understand their values. Strand Design’s dedication to quality, community and sustainable techniques fueled our interest in sharing their story. Learn more at stranddesign.org
