Memo is a design company serving the contract furniture market. We work with accomplished designers around the world to create furniture for personal and shared interior spaces that exist across work and life. We design, manufacture, and sell, a portfolio of lounge seating, tables, and casework with modest custom options. Memo is based in Seattle, Washington and is represented across North America by Independent Sales Representatives.
Our headquarters and studio are located in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood; known for its historic role as the home of Boeing Field and the center of Seattle’s beer and coffee brewing industries. Today Georgetown is a dynamic intersection of artist studios, light industry, design showrooms, and restaurants, and its pioneering spirit is infused in Memo’s brand.
Not too far afield from Memo’s headquarters are our manufacturing partners. Along with the production of Memo products, these facilities service the high-end retail and aerospace industries, offering exceptional craftsmanship and access to elite quality systems. Their expertise marries well with our focus on materials and craft, and their proximity allows for powerful efficiencies in service, lead-times, and customization.
Motivated by design’s ability to positively affect the human condition, we create products that honor the essential. We believe that design engages best when it gets out of the way. At its most elemental, design compels us to nurture a deeper connection to an object’s fundamental qualities, giving voice to the materials from which it was made, the techniques by which it was crafted, and the designer by whom it was imagined. Through this process of distillation, we aim to create a world free of excess and the unnecessary, bringing us closer to the things that provide meaning and fulfillment. It’s when design honors the essential that we, in turn, honor the most essential of all: the human experience.
