Art & Guile

Long Island City, NY

ART & GUILE is a New York-based design studio founded in 2016 by artists Kate Hopkins and Christopher Boynton. Kate, a painter and printmaker, and Chris, a 3D modeler and former video artist, merge their singular perspectives to produce a range of minimal but spirited contemporary light fixtures, furniture, and objects. The work is simultaneously spare and inviting, enlisting the partners’ artistic vocabularies in the service of clever, engaging design. Chris and Kate design and produce everything themselves in Long Island City, with the help of local fabricators. Ideal for residential or commercial spaces, with a range of customizable options as well as site-specific commission capability.
