MSDS Studio

MSDS Studio is a Toronto-based interior, furniture and lighting design studio founded by Jessica Nakanishi and Jonathan Sabine.

The work of MSDS Studio is a synthesis of Jessica's experience in interior design and Jonathan's experience in furniture and cabinet making. « We try to employ the principles of good design and craftsmanship in the pursuit of forms that are familiar yet provocative. We believe that a clearly expressed concept and element of surprise can compel someone to acquire an object, and that nuance and craft can compel them to keep it. We value imagination, the practical, the beautiful, the useful, and the strange. »

Jessica Nakanishi and Jonathan Sabine have already received distinctions : they were named Canadian Product Designers of the Year in 2015, and Jonathan's bottle opener design is now part of the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
