Mark is a 4th generation New York builder best known as a founding partner of the award winning and nationally acclaimed New World Home, creators of the New Old Green Modular (currently featured in the new hardcover PREFABULOUS + ALMOST OFF THE GRID). Inspired by the craftsman of his family starting with his great grandfather hammering out the original copper roofs of the city’s first skyscrapers, to the hand carved furniture designed and built by his father, Mark is committed to continuing his family’s long standing tradition with the launch of MARK JUPITER in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
MARK JUPITER offers a well-crafted furniture collection at a cost accessible to the general market. With a philosophical commitment to sustainability MARK JUPITER utilizes mostly reclaimed and repurposed materials found from local sources. Hand made right in the back of the new showroom in DUMBO, Brooklyn, clients can view the many newly created pieces on the floor or make an appointment to design their very own custom furniture piece.
“We are finding that people not only appreciate our designs and prices, but truly love the great stories behind the materials used. For example we have several tables on the floor constructed from the ancient Redwood of 150-year-old New York City water towers, extinct Heart Pine taken from the old Brooklyn sugar refinery, and equally rare spalted Elm from trees toppled by the Brooklyn tornado of 2011. The stories go on and on.”
