MSDS Studio

MSDS Studio is a Toronto-based furniture, lighting, and interior design practice by Jessica Nakanishi and Jonathan Sabine. Their work is a synthesis of Jessica's experience in interior design and Jonathan's background in furniture and cabinet making. They were named Canadian Product Designers of the Year in 2015. Jonathan's bottle opener design is in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

MSDS Studio produces a design that engages contemporary culture while adhering to the abiding principles of good design and the inheritance of craftsmanship. Their work synthesizes consideration of material, form, space, and brief into resolved interior, furniture, and lighting design. This multidisciplinarity informs the resourcefulness that is the hallmark of their practice. MSDS believes interior space should be a stimulating yet intimate interface between humans and buildings.
