Avenue Road’s Stephan Weishaupt on taking a fresh direction with his latest furniture brand, Man of Parts.
As design aficionados go, Stephan Weishaupt, co-founder of North American contemporary design store Avenue Road and an avid collector, is as dedicated as they come. His beautifully outfitted homes in Toronto, Munich and Miami, and his frequent international travels to sniff out worthy additions to Avenue Road’s collections, bear testament to his eye for elegant and covetable design.
Now Weishaupt has launched a separate furniture and lighting brand, Man of Parts, with a collection of 27 products. Featuring designs by a host of long-time collaborators, including Yabu Pushelberg (the duo co-founded Avenue Road, with Weishaupt becoming sole owner in 2016), Philippe Malouin, Sebastian Herkner and Osvaldo Tenório, Man of Parts is intended to reflect a contemporary way of living, rather than a singular aesthetic. ‘The Man of Parts is a person who travels a lot, a global nomad. Luxury can be found in the moments one spends at home, either to rest or to entertain or to be creative,’ Weishaupt summarises.
‘Those are the key ideas [behind] how it all started. We don’t need much, but we need good things, good objects that support our way of life.’
