glaze is a lifestyle product design studio based in New York City. It was founded by Akeem Pierre Glaze and Stephanie Marie DelVecchio in 2017.
We create authentic, quality items designed with distinct attention to detail and an emotive experience in mind. We draw on influences from our roots in Palm Beach and the Northeast, and infuse the two lifestyles into our products through color, material, form, and imagery.
At glaze, we dedicate much time to the product creation process. Through hand sketches, mock-ups, digital modeling, and 3D printing, we are able to quickly produce usable prototypes in order to perfect form and function before moving forward with production. We believe that problem solving through experimentation is crucial to developing inspiring design solutions.
Our material selection process is completely intertwined with our form development, as one influences the other. We select materials for their innate qualities and bold characteristics.
Each piece is made with integrity in collaboration with small, family-owned American lumberyards, woodworkers, and candlemakers.
All finishing work is done in-house at glaze’s studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This is where our products really come to life. The glaze team meticulously completes each piece by hand, ensuring all details are in place for a consistent final product.
