The Opportunity

About Friends of

Friends of is an industrial design studio based in New York City. We design thoughtful products for a wide range of clients, from the single person start-up to the big multinational household name. We believe that one of the biggest risks to great design is the designer not seeing the product through to manufacture - we work with our partners until a product is approved for production. We deliver amazing design work to our partners, but we deeply care for and enjoy our work. We take care of ourselves and respect our time away from the office as much as we do at the office.

You will have the opportunity to run projects from concept through to manufacture, working with the Friends of team as well as partners, stakeholders and manufacturers.

We’re looking for collaborators who are interested in helping define the direction of our studio and who are eager to help grow the business with us!
