Ottra creates sculptural, solid wood furniture in a waterside shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Founded by Sofia and Adam Zimmerman, it started as a side project for our architecture firm, Zimmerman Workshop. And since 2017, Ottra has grown into its own award-winning brand that has been recognized by The New York Times, Interior Design, and Worth, among others. Our intent is to craft intentional, memorable furniture that you will enjoy for decades to come. 

We work with architects, designers, and collectors throughout the United States and beyond. And in every instance, we love the process of getting to know you, your needs, and how we can add to the beautiful surroundings you’re creating. And given our roots in architecture, we prioritize meticulous detailing, quality materials, listening carefully, and impeccable service.  


All Ottra products are made to order by our dedicated team. This affords us the opportunity to customize and experiment with materials and methods. And we are proud to foster careers, support local suppliers, and to be a part of a burgeoning community of artisans in Red Hook. We invite you to visit and share in the pleasure that is our everyday.
