Designer Eny Lee Parker on Making a Viral Lamp, Hiring a Happy Team, and Her Next Act
Listen now
Description
Furniture designer Eny Lee Parker first took over our collective Instagram feeds in 2018 with her now ubiquitous U-shaped OO Lamp, which has appeared in the homes of such people as Sarah Sherman Samuel and Christian Siriano. From her studio in Queens, New York, Parker and her team continue to churn out the chicest totemic ceramic lighting and furniture—but in true rebel fashion, she says she’s more focused on maintaining a happy staff and giving back to her community than just making art. Listen as she fills us in on why she’s not interested in being the best designer on the planet, her two dream celebrity clients, and how she DIYed her rental kitchen—but don’t tell her landlord.
