Hey, Porter co-founders Devry Drosky and Dave Flynn both have multidisciplinary backgrounds. The studio itself provides services that span across art direction, branding, product design, identity, and curation, among others. Perhaps this explains, at least in part, why the Hey, Porter furniture collection looks so distinctive and creative.

The Rochester-based creative studio designed the four pieces as homages to historic figures and events. For example, Hemmy is a side table that takes its name after Ernest Hemingway. It also references classic ‘50s British sports cars in a subtle way. Naturally, it comes with generous space for a drink or two, as well as a custom leather sling for books. Or the 923 chair, which takes inspiration from the 1st running of the 24-Hour Le Mans race. The pendant lamp PL.1 is made with turned European beech and maple wood, while the Ada bar cart takes its name from Ada Coleman, a renowned bartender and craft cocktail creator.

Minimalist and elegant, the four designs combine comfort, function and style. Featuring clean lines and geometric shapes as well as retro accents and splashes of color, the furniture collection complements modern interiors perfectly. The use of traditional manufacturing methods coupled with natural materials give each piece a premium finish, reminiscent of products crafted in the ‘good old days’. Photo credits: Hey, Porter.
