THOMPSON STREET STUDIO designs and crafts objects for the home with a focus on experimental textiles. We explore connections between art, industry and nature; finding joy in the serendipitous, looping process of discovery, conception and making.
Kiva Motnyk founded Thompson Street Studio in 2014, inspired by her family home, a space that served as a communal dance, painting and photography studio in SoHo since 1976. Kiva has continued this creative environment, cross-pollinated by a new generation of artists, designers, and artisans realizing an inspiring vision of home.
Kiva Motnyk is a textile designer with fifteen years of experience establishing creative direction for brands in fashion and home furnishings. Her sensibility is rooted in a love of color, texture and pattern, expressed through a modern application of traditional techniques
