Reliquary Studio is a full service design/build firm focusing on custom furniture and other specialty fabrication projects. Officially launched in the spring of 2011 by Matt Hogan, Reliquary Studio produces beautifully handcrafted and purposefully designed objects and environments.
Prior to the launch of Reliquary Studio, Matt spent 10 years building custom furniture on a freelance basis while maintaining full time fabrication and fabrication management positions at a variety of companies. Most notably among those were with MADE LLC (where fabrication projects led by Matt were featured in publications such as Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Interior Design Magazine, New York Magazine, and Design Solutions Magazine and were awarded the Architectural Woodworking Institute's Award of Excellence) and Dakota Jackson Inc (where Matt led the design, engineering, and fabrication of all custom residential casegoods).
In the continuing effort to further the sustainability of our fabrication processes, the shop was relocated in the summer of 2015 from Brooklyn's Industry City to a solar powered farm in New York's Hudson River Valley. In addition to being powered entirely through solar production, Reliquary Studio byproducts also provide valuable bedding and compost for local area farmers as well as heating for the shop through the winter. Continued and constant consideration is given to responsible and sustainable practices in all facets of the fabrication process. Portrait by Philip Johnson.
