We founded Periscope with the ambition of bringing modern and contemporary design to Maine. As an independent design space, we showcase a mix of established brands and emerging designers, offering an ever-evolving, handpicked range of housewares, furniture, and lifestyle items. In our view, art and utility are not mutually exclusive.
We are currently selecting from the best of Scandinavian design as well as collaborating with local and other small design/build businesses, fostering dialogue between global regions and production scales in the design field. This feeds and spurs our curiosity and hope it does the same for you.
Co-founders Ariel Hall and Jan Leth both have creative backgrounds, Ariel as a working artist in New York City and Jan as a global creative director at the advertising firm Ogilvy. Ariel grew up in midcoast Maine, and Jan spent time there annually for decades before moving up permanently a few years ago. They share a love of art, design, and creative experimentation. Periscope is their first joint project.
