Heavy Eyes


Heavy Eyes is a Brooklyn based multidisciplinary design studio. Founded by Matt Cavanaugh and Kathleen Scudder in 2016, Heavy Eyes specializes in the creation of bespoke visual displays, custom sculptures, spatial installations, prop and object design.

We offer services across a wide range of mediums: Art Direction, Concept + Design, Prototyping, Technical Drawings, Project Management, Research + Sourcing, Fabrication and Installation.

Our work emphasizes simple production methods, often using a single fabrication process. We value thoughtful designs based on ideas refined over and over again. We aim to source locally and ethically. Each piece is assembled by hand in our studio. We welcome collaborations of all kinds.

Heavy Eyes has recently been featured on Whitewall.artHypebeast.comHighsnobiety.com and Designboom.com
