Previously, Stepanek was with Los Angeles-based MASHstudios, where she served as a furniture designer. Her professional furniture design experience dates to 2014 when she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago followed by a second Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design from Savannah College.
“Cassie’s design talent and ability to create meaningful, creative solutions offer exceptional value for our Studio Other clients,” said Studio Other President and Creative Director Charlotte Wiederholt. “We are excited to provide her with a leadership opportunity as the Studio Other business and market penetration continue to expand.“
In her new role, Stepanek will manage the Studio Other design team, oversee the brand and daily design output, and continue to educate and inspire the team on a creative level. She will also supervise all client projects and dealer relationships nationwide.
Studio Other designs custom, scalable furniture solutions that bring each client’s unique vision to life, while meeting their distinct needs and reinforcing their brand aesthetic. The company partners with architects, designers and brands that embrace being different well as clients that are emotionally engaged in the process, willing to take risks and ready to roll up their sleeves to help make creative concepts a reality.
