In 1991 Detroit Manufacturing Designer, Robert Stanzler, started a new kind of design company -
one dedicated to the exploration of Detroit's identity through design. Operating and
manufacturing in the (city of) Detroit, Detroit Manufacturing is forging a link between Detroit's
celebrated past and its dynamic future.
His designs have been on the pages of I-D, The Face, Arena, Details, Interview, GQ,
Rolling Stone, Glamour and Paper magazines. They have been worn by D-12,
Eminem (in the movie 8-Mile and real life), Proof, Paradime, Obie Trice, Proof, King Gordy,
Berry Gordy, Iggy Pop, The Detroit Cobras, The White Stripes, The Von Bondies,
Brendan Benson, Cyril Lords, Bulldog, The Paybacks, The Muggs, Derrick May, Kevin
Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Richie Hawtin, Kenny Larkin, Blake Baxter, Alton Miller, Carl Craig,
DJ Bone, Brothers Groove, Howling Diablos, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, (also Tommy Lee, Pamela
Anderson), Rude Jude, Foo Fighters, Queens of The Stone Age, Coldplay, U2, Outkast, Oasis,
Green Day, Good Charlotte, Velvet Revolver, Beck, Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, Metallica,
Aerosmith, Nine Inch Nails, Staind, Butthole Surfers, Rage Against The Machine, Beastie Boys,
Kings Of Leon, N.E.R.D., Electric Six, Jet, and Fu Manchu to name a few.
When his brand was purchased by a successful Detroit musician in 2005 and subsequently
moved (by its new owner) to the North Oakland County suburb of Clarkston, Stanzler left
the company to start a new brand in the (city of) Detroit.
Detroit Manufacturing is the continuation of Stanzler's vision - globally viable design based on
Detroit's identity, locally produced and (city of) Detroit based.
