Founded in 2003 and housed in an historic publishing factory in downtown San Francisco, Jonathan Browning Studios is a full service design firm focused on both product design and interior design. Whether it is cast bronze lighting and furniture or the interiors of a residence, the work is rooted in classicism and expressed in modernism.
In 2007 JB Studios entered into a partnership with J.T. Kalmar, which was founded in 1881 in Vienna Austria. Long considered the authority in cast bronze work, Kalmar moved from statuary to lighting in 1900, and was at the very heart of the Secession and Weiner Werkstatte movements. As Design Director Jonathan Browning is the first designer to review this historic archive, and is pleased to offer original designs from Kalmar, updated for today’s market.
