ART WITH PURPOSE. TECHNOLOGY WITH POETIC SOUL.
In a world inundated with information, where algorithms optimize distraction, and the promise of technology has given way to feelings of isolation and fatigue, August & Wonder creates decor objects that evoke, connect, and inform.
Our creative window on the world looks with awe at the changing patterns of the natural world and human endeavors that swirl around us.
Beautiful yet useful, our pieces don't just give you a magical glimpse into the ebb and flow of markets, the tides and the weather, they touch you with their poetry and playfulness.
Physical and analog, our objects become a part of your environment, subtly but clearly communicating, without interrupting.
We connect you to the outside world through physical poetry, so you can be more present in your own world.
Without needing to shout, our objects speak to the heart as well as the mind. Informing you, yes, but also, at a glance, making you feel a sense of wonder.
August & Wonder meticulously creates small batches between 300 and 500 of our enchanted objects. We choose compelling combinations of fine materials and finishes for each edition.
When we announce that a new object or edition is being commenced, we will open the edition or object for pre-order. Current August & Wonder Customers receive the first opportunity on all new editions and objects.
