Deeply influenced by indigenous crafts, dusty yet vibrant palettes of 1970s films, and the American natural landscape, Cold Picnic, formed in 2010 by partners Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer, is based in Brooklyn, New York. Pre-2010, Sung and Buer began working on various side projects to explore traditional crafts filtered through modern sensibilities - before long these projects coalesced into Cold Picnic. Sung and Buer continue to make nearly all pieces from their Brooklyn studio, partnering with other small production companies to explore modalities outside of their disciplines and bring us amazing concepts in imaginative object-based form.
