Stephanie Beamer, Crystal Ellis and Hillary Petrie met as students at Washington University in St. Louis, and they’ve been working together ever since. What makes them unique is how they meld their individual areas of expertise – architecture, art and woodworking – when exploring new ways to solve problems. The trio founded Egg Collective with the aim of creating sculptural, heirloom-quality furniture, lighting and accessories that evoke their own personal histories and draw upon memories of those close to them. Some of their works include the Harvey Mirror, a nod to Ellis’ grandfather, aeronautical engineer Thomas Harvey, and the Morrison Storage Collection, named after longtime friend Morrison Mullen. Egg won a Best New Designer award at the 2012 International Contemporary Furniture Fair and was included on Forbes magazine’s 2014 “30 Under 30” list. The studio was also commissioned to design a seating area for the New York City Ballet’s David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.
