New (Old) Directors

The Principals would like to announce that after 4 years, co-founder Chris Williams will be leaving the studio. Drew Seskunas and Charles Constantine will remain co-directors of The Principals.  This change brings a higher focus on the new systems designed, prototyped and developed by the studio and a shift away from non-studio initiated fabrication. We're excited for what's next and can't wait to share with you what new territories we explore.   

Collective DF

We're excited to announce The Principals have been selected by Collective DF to design the entrance pavilion to this year's fair during NYCxDesign. Glacial Drift is a site specific installation made from folded cells of recyclable corrugated plastic. Multifunctional clusters of cantilevered plantings and street furniture provide shelter and prismatically filter light, resulting in a complex structure that resembles glaciers adrift at sea. Many thanks to our sponsors Urban Garden Center, S&S Printing and Die Cutting and Popco. The fair runs from May 4-8th at 500 Washington Street.
