This year’s BKLYN Designs showcase of Brooklyn-based furniture makers featured so many talented designers that it was really difficult to pick one that stood out from the pack. But after much deliberation, we Inhabitat editors kept coming back to one out-of-this-world name – Mark Jupiter. Please give Mark a warm round of applause for winning this year’s Inhabitat BKLYN Designs Editors’ Choice Award and read on to learn more about his custom, Brooklyn-made furniture built using historic, reclaimed materials.
Mark Jupiter is a fourth generation NYC craftsman who builds a little bit of history into every piece of furniture he creates. For example, when you take a seat on one of his custom couches, you could be sitting on anything from extinct Heart Pine extracted from an old sugar refinery to old-growth Redwood stripped from 100-year-old water towers. Each one of his creations is unique and crafted in his DUMBO, Brooklyn workshop.
Congrats Mark for winning this year’s Inhabitat BKLYN Designs Editors’ Choice Award – we love your work! To learn more about Mark’s designs, check out our coverage of his booth and visit the Mark Jupiter website here.
