Bower is a contemporary design studio based in New York City founded by Danny Giannella and Tammer Hijazi in 2013. Through a free experimental design process they bring unique and unexpected objects into people's lives. Tammer and Danny love finding intriguing characteristics in anything from plants and animals, to toys from their childhood and dreaming up completely different functional applications for them, often ending up with delightfully surprising results. This process is their happy place, experimenting and exploring a detail that has caught their interest without being sure how it will manifest itself in the end. The spirit of discovery in Danny and Tammer's process lives though their objects and is felt when people engage with a Bower design. Bower was an honoree from Sight Unseen's 2014 American Design Hot List.
