It Grows Up, Too
In the Bakony Forest in his native Hungary, András Gipp grew up watching his father and grandfather sculpt and make virtually everything needed for family life, from bowls to tables to beds, by hand. Gipp fell in love with wood as a living medium and studied fine art woodworking and instrument building in Europe before moving to New York City. He’s built hundreds of pianos, bass guitars, and sailboats, and now he’s launched a woodworking studio, Hudson Workshop, in Hurley, and a line of furniture made only from locally sourced and sustainable wood. The heirloom-quality Hudson High Chair is designed to pull straight up to the dining table, allowing children to join the family meal from six months to about four years old. Made with maple, black walnut, mixed medium, and leather, the high chair features solid wood joinery and is available in natural finish or whitewash.
