Post Company believes that design lives at the intersection of beauty, elegance, and utility.
Post Company is an award-winning, multidisciplinary design firm that works across hospitality, retail and residential typologies. Founded in 2012, and led by partners Ruben Caldwell, Jou-Yie Chou, and Leigh Salem, Post Company crafts environments that are simultaneously comprehensive in their approach and exacting in their detail.
With a team comprised of architects, interior designers, carpenters, art directors, and graphic designers, the firm is an amalgam of disciplines which combine to make spaces that reflect an expansive and unified holistic expression. That manifestation is the result of a process that involves Post Company’s wholesale investment in every aspect of a project – from the most elemental feel of a space to its first residents and guests. This foundational exploration considers a broad range of outcomes that are edited and honed into a cohesive narrative that is singular to the project’s location, environment, and operational needs. This understanding of the ‘why’ of every project helps Post Company make spaces that will endure and evolve, with an eye toward design that transcends the moment and imagines new traditions.
This immersive methodology, along with the firm’s intense understanding of design and construction, love for materials, and deep knowledge of architectural history, is combined with their irreverence, to create a uniquely Post Company project. Ultimately, Post Company sees design as an enabler of experience, rather than the singular protagonist of any space. Great design is universally applicable and broadly accessible; as such, Post Company pushes to expand design beyond luxury and exclusivity and toward a broad exploration of human interactions.
Beyond the culture of its projects, Post Company takes great care to craft a studio culture that is meaningful and fulfilling. The firm utilizes a flexible work week to improve the work-life balance for its staff and partners. Post Company is proud to join a range of companies certified by Climate Neutral through a commitment to entirely offset its carbon footprint. Through their partnership with 1% for the Planet, Post Company is committing one percent of annual revenues to supporting organizations that are addressing the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
