“It is neither sun nor shade that makes a home, but the balance of both…great design does not make a home if it does not fit the individual’s needs, wants and desires. A home is created within the balance of thoughtful architecture and a profound understanding of the individual.”

Stoneham, Bryce & Smith, Desmond, The House and the Home: The Balance of Architecture and Psychology within the Residential Home

Better tools, better experience


Houses are generational by nature. Different owners may remodel, paint and alter but the basic structure remains the same. Each generation of our products will build on the structure laid out before it while taking into account the Functionist’s habits and feedback. We believe it takes time and human input to create the best version of a product; over time you will see multiple iterations of each Function House piece as we pursue excellence.


Just because the sink has a leak, doesn’t mean you remodel the whole kitchen.

Lost a part? Rather than throwing the entire piece away and buying a new one, contact us to purchase a replacement piece. If the product needs servicing, send it in! Function House aims to combat disposable consumerism through modular design and thoughtful, quality production.

About our Founder

Tyler Lau is a native of Lawrence, Kansas but spent his childhood travelling the world with his father, a photographer. Tyler studied industrial design at the University of Kansas, but just when his first cannabis accessory business was taking off, he was incarcerated on cannabis charges. Function House is his new venture, one driven by a desire to bring high-quality, engineered products that are stylish enough to blend into the most design-forward homes.

Tyler is also on a mission to destigmatize cannabis consumption and to fight cannabis-related criminal injustice disproportionately affecting immigrant, minority, and POC communities.
