Founded in 2008 by Katherine Wildt, the brand started with a sketch book, some watercolor and a passion for gemstones. The first prototype was fabricated on Katherine's kitchen table in her small NYC apartment, where she lived with her beloved house-rabbit Matthew…the inspiration behind the brand. Over ten years, the brand has grown world-wide, and works with a roster of world-renowned designers, celebrities, and inspiring homeowners. The brand has been featured in Vogue, Elle Décor, Harper’s Bazaar, the Financial Times among many others.
Projects span the globe, and include distinguished homes, hotels, and retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Kate Spade and Tory Burch.
Katherine was introduced to gemstones as a teenager, while working in a gem shop. This began a lifelong passion to study and learn about the energetic properties of the crystal realm. Since then, Katherine has travelled the world sourcing unique gems and materials. Her knowledge of gemstones has led her to work with energy and healing practitioners including Reiki Masters and Shamans, among others in the metaphysical and design community alike.
Katherine started her career at a Madison Avenue boutique interior design firm, and later went on to spend much of her storied career in lighting and manufacturing. She has held the titles of Director of Oxygen Lighting, Global Sales Manager at Baldinger Lighting, Luceplan Lighitng and Kartell. Katherine has also served as an adjunct professor at NYSID Graduate Lighting Department. She currently lives in Harlem NY with her daughter Quinn and dog Winston.
"I am most proud that so many designers tell me the product feels like art, and has great energy."
