Asa Pingree & Chef Bao Bao
for T Brand Studio & Herradura Tequila
Chef Bao Bao and furniture designer Asa Pingree have similar origin stories, though one makes comfort for your belly and the other for your butt.
Asa spent a summer at age 14 helping his Dad build a 55-foot yacht. This year, using much of the knowledge he gained building boats, Asa began crafting a beautiful line of furniture.
At 15, Bao Bao moved from Thailand to Brooklyn to gain experience working in one of her Mom’s five restaurants. Today, she operates Baoburg, a transportive Asian Fusion spot in Williamsburg.
T Brand Studio, in partnership with Herradura, asked me to spend time with these two lovely humans to capture the hard work they put in every day.
