02/08/2019 - Avoirdupois debuted in 2019 with Collection Nº1 / Tripartite designed and engineered by James Stumpf and made in his SoHo workshop in New York. Every piece shares commonality with a triplicating motif running through the entire collection in discernible and ambiguous ways. 22 pieces total will be released.

Collection Nº1 / Tripartite takes visual cues from the interiors of mid-to-late 20th-century government facilities of East Berlin. These facilities are hauntingly beautiful and many share a sparse, modern vernacular with muted colors, wall coverings, lighting and furniture.
 
Tripartite as a collection is the visual division of three. Every piece shares commonality with a single triplicating motif running through the entire collection in discernible and ambiguous ways.

Aluminum and silver tones were prominently featured over brass and gold tones. The triplicating motif was explored in a multitude of materials including veneers, lacquers, hardwoods, metals, plastics, bentwood, plywood, porcelain, upholstery and natural caning. All pieces are numbered to represent their inclusion in Collection Nº1, said numbers are all divisible by three.
 
Limits were self-imposed on ornamentation, with a singular motif forming the basis of every piece, a vast number of materials were explored to keep each piece unique but also unified within the collection.
