Studio Kirchmer was founded in Miami, Florida by designer and former architect Kendra Kirchmer. Since its inception in 2016 the Studio has gained international and national attention through exhibitions in Milan & NYC.
The initial collection focuses on creating a series of objects and furniture that engages us through materials, motion, and sound. Every material tells a story and the minimal forms and refined elements of the pieces reflect the designer’s intent to give them a voice.

Kendra Kirchmer is an artist, designer and educator whose work celebrates precise moments; a simple connection detail, the amazing variations in tone found in a single piece of walnut, or even the sound of a drawer opening and closing. Her products are inspired by these simple moments of fascination, activity, and use.
She recently completed her MFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she was awarded the President's Scholarship. Before turning her focus to furniture, she practiced both residential and commercial Architecture at nationally recognized design firms around the country.
