Comprised of a portfolio of design-centric businesses Weishaupt Design Group approaches design with point of view, a reflection of the personal vision of Founder, Stephan Weishaupt. Born from a desire to connect, curate, and cultivate meaningful relationships between makers and design lovers, the Group works to honour the authenticity of the products and materials with which they are crafted, as well as the stories of those who create them.
Rooted in the intention to continuously deliver personal, meaningful experiences, our teams work together with a thoughtful, forward-looking approach, prompting our clients and collaborators to expect the unexpected.
At its inception, AVENUE ROAD, Weishaupt Design Group’s flagship brand, was founded in partnership with George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg with a pure passion for bringing the best of the design world to North America. Having since grown to include expansive showrooms in New York, Miami, Toronto and Vancouver, as well as a Loft in New York, Villa in Miami, Townhouse in Toronto, and a pop-up location in Dallas, each provides a very different perspective from which to experience the curated world of AVENUE ROAD.
Under the sole stewardship of Stephan Weishaupt since 2016, Weishaupt Design Group has grown to incorporate partnerships with global brands Obumex, Kvadrat Raf Simons, Glas Italia, and Kaufmann Keramik, fleshing out a Total Concept that began with The Rug Company, Tribu and USM.
Stemming from a desire to nurture and guide design innovation, and to collaborate more closely with makers, MAN OF PARTS, launched in 2019, is a post-national design brand with inspiration from the world over. Furniture, lighting, accessories, fabrics, and leathers reflect the varied inspirations and lives of globally minded people, also aiming to match the desire for beautiful craft with a modern service experience, reflecting a new definition of luxury.
Publicly launched in 2021, 5oz. was conceived by Weishaupt, taking a collaborative approach to partnerships with artists by offering a gallery environment that guides both the presentation and buying experience in a way that is highly individualised. Stemming from a life-long immersion in the art world and as an extension of his successful, multi-national design businesses.
Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Weishaupt Design Group is committed to providing a sustainable future for the Group, our colleagues, collaborators, and clients. Through socially responsible business practices, relationships, and giving back to our global community, we are contributing to a better future for our planet.
