About Us

Welcome to Abetica™ Studios

Abetica Studios was founded in 2006 as a creative passion project by Daniel Stiel, beginning as a design studio and fine arts gallery providing solutions to corporate clients, art collectors, architects, and designers. The studio was also an authorized retailer of exceptional furnishings from Knoll, Modernica, BluDot, Yamagiwa, and other distinctive modern collections.

Today, Abetica Studios has evolved into providing marketing-focused design solutions to select clients, including aerial photography and cinematography.

Our team continues to support the arts, education and environmental stewardship through a variety of on-going efforts.
