Mark Moskovitz started Fiftytwothousand as a design|build studio in 2005 focused on observation driven design with formal interests in both the raw and refined. Since 2011, the firm's emphasis has been on commercial production and contract work that maintains the spirit found in studio furniture with details that highlight the seductive quality of materials, proportion, scale, and color. They make every effort to produce the work within a two hour radius of the studio in Ohio, and within the USA whenever realistic.
