We began with two tireless dreamers from Portland, Oregon.
Andy Powell and Nate Shapiro spent their early days seeking better ways to make architecture, buildings, soft goods and furniture. They met in a collective warehouse studio filled with kindred spirits and creative rabble-rousers, where they forged a friendship founded on curiosity, creative collaboration, and the tireless honing of crafts and capabilities.
In the years since, they have grown their practices to become go-to problem solvers, designing and manufacturing thoughtful, future-facing solutions for the workplaces of the some of the most forward-thinking companies around.
Building in the spirit of these roots, and with the insights gained through decades of creating innovative products, custom furniture systems, and bespoke interiors, they’ve partnered to create a furniture company that will bring our best to workplaces everywhere. We call it Second Space.
We’re built on sound principles...
…and clear-eyed aspirations.
Do It For the Planet
There is no business worth doing that doesn’t craft a future that is ecologically sustainable and socially just for all of us. We’re committed to providing safe, healthy and equitable work environments, and to using the most sustainable materials and manufacturing practices at our disposal. We will unfailingly search for ways to improve our practices and lessen our footprint as our company grows.
We’re made here, and we believe our products and jobs should be too. From our partnerships with manufacturers on the East Coast and in the Midwest, to our local packaging suppliers and in-house manufacturing here in Portland, Oregon, we’re committed to creating supply chains and communities that are close to home both today and in all the years to come.
