Friends & Family


Friends & Family is a cross-disciplinary creative agency comprised of designers and builders. Over the last 12 years, our founder, Taavo Somer has collaborated with a close-knit network of friends and family developing pioneering businesses that have influenced not only restaurant, hotel and fashion industries, but also culture at large. We have come together to continue this collaborative approach in an effort to craft enduring objects, spaces, and brands of vitality.

By building culturally aware brands and brand experiences through creative direction, graphic design, art direction, trend forecasting, interior design/build and furniture design/build, we create meaningful and resonant lifestyle experiences. We believe our ability to approach every project from varied perspectives is integral in doing so.
