Iacoli & McAllister was started in 2009 by Jamie Iacoli and Brian McAllister. Drawn to work together by a shared interest in material and process, their work is minimal in nature and high in impact. Until 2015 all of their work was designed and fabricated in their Seattle studio. Brian left the company in 2016 to pursue other interests in design as well as the high Alpine landscape of the Pacific Northwest.
In her work Jamie draws from her studies in eastern and western philosophy, 19th and 20th century literature, 20th & 21st century art as well as her travels and quiet time spent in solitude. In her work she explores the way lines, planes and volumes intersect space and she is intrigued by what is not, the negative space of a piece.
Iacoli & McAllister fixtures are made all along the west coast and components are sourced from American unless the experts are in another country; ie blown glass cylinders for the Nunki Collection are brought in from the Czech Republic. All pieces are assembled in their Seattle studio by a small team.
Iacoli & McAllister’s work has been featured in The New York Times, T Magazine, Wallpaper*, Sight Unseen, Dwell, Elle Decor, Vogue Living among other publications online and in print.
