Dedication to original + contemporary design, The_Studio@ continues to maintain a focus on compact, lightweight + smart materials. Partnering with visionary manufacturers they are able to successfully introduce «concept products» to market. The current focus on a collection of stainless steel wallets is a demonstration in the use of non-traditional materials for every day objects.
The development of the stainless steel textile woven from threads of purely stainless steel also combines the artistry of letterpress-style plate making with modern press operations. Since the project began The_Studio@ has expanded their portfolio, introducing over a dozen stainless steel textured fabrics.

// THE STAINLESS STEEL WALLET _ Designed 2005 - The discovery, refinement and development of Stewart/Stand’s signature stainless steel material coincided with a seminal exhibition at The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The title of the exhibition: Extreme Textiles.
The material has diverse applications: Incorporated into spacesuits for durability, appreciated by architects for its flexible + stable nature, favored by engineers for its precision and impermeability, preferred by surgeons for strength, and chosen by Stewart/Stand for its beauty and security.
Around the time of this exhibition we began developing the material for our specific applications, falling in love with both the steel’s touch and handle. Stewart/Stand sensed a tremendous opportunity at the intersection of fashion and technology. Combining age-old tailoring techniques, with state of the art equipment, Stewart/Stand ensures a thin, lightweight alternative to traditional leather; an intelligent accessory that can be carried every day.
