Love What You Do is a mini-series of moving and still images portraiting artisans and small businesses that we love and collaborate.
We are excited to continue this project featuring Robert True Ogden and Natalie Page, the creative force behind Lostine Home Goods, a design-built studio of furniture, lighting, and home accessories. Lostine is based in Philadelphia, PA, where they design, prototype, and manufacture small batch products with a team of artisans.
Rare is the opportunity to get a glimpse inside an artist's studio to observe their process and the body of work. We are grateful to have the opportunity to document both Robert and Natalie's creative processes in each of their creative environment.
Robert and Natalie have very different approaches and styles to their own collection RTO Lighting and NPage Studio. Yet, when it comes to Lostine, each object in the showroom contains form, color, and functionality transformed by the amalgamation of style and timelessness.
Scroll down for a video of our visit to Lostine.
From our experience, we know running a production facility is not easy, and it was inspiring to see the Lostine team move through their workspaces with ease and grace.
Natalie is a celebrated ceramicist. Her hand-built clay work, best known for The Ceramic Funnel Light Series, has been featured in Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Remoelista, House and Garden, Architectural Digest, and many other publications.
Natalie focuses on elegantly simple forms and a monochromatic palette in her own work, leaving colorful interpretations when she works with Robert on Lostine.
Thank you Lostine!
