DESIGN WITH THE UNKNOWN / STUDIO OINK AT SALONE DEL MOBILE IN MILAN 2016

STUDIO OINK creative lab will be part of Salone del Mobile 2016 in Lambrate. Their project "Design with the Unknown" is a collaboration with British artist Aimee Bollu.

STUDIO OINK has created a small collection of unrecognisable objects, in cooperation with Aimee Bollu. The design process was based around the structure of the unknown; the two design studios have never met, interacting with each other only through social media. Found materials from each other’s cities were collected, traded and consumed by the other, with the outcomes nestling alongside each other in the completed collection. A series of challenges underpin the calm collection of objects. Working with another individual’s material of choice leads one to design for the other, whilst instilling his or her own aesthetic and approach to the object. There are familiar connections between each designer and their found objects, and new influences made for their counterpart. The parts made are used to ponder and question, to refer to the uncertainty in life. Materials assemble, stack and connect. Concoctions of wood, glass and porcelain perform alongside curious pieces of plastic, sponge or other found matter. The resulting collection identifies the aesthetic of both sides in their meticulous and neat approach to design and effortlessly explores connections between strangers, through their ability to connect with objects. Unaware of each other’s progress and designs, the final gathering of pieces alludes to a similar approach to thinking. The resulting transformations of materials alter and exist as new hybrids for collaboration; they are an assemblage of functionless products tied by their selection for unassuming or unknown beauty.

Design with the unknown was an exploration of unfamiliar territory for materials, processes, and people. Creating in different countries, time zones, ideals and expectations, our only common language is the unknown.

Design with the unknown; a collection of objects formed from materials found, collected, traded and consumed by the other designer to inform the creative process and intercept STUDIO OINK and Aimee Bollu’s customary approach to design. Our common language is the unknown, our objects are unidentified.

PORCELAIN STUDIO BOMI FOR STUDIO OINK

Last Friday we went to Berlin to catch some more beautiful and finely selected ceramic and art pieces for our gallery in Leipzig. We met with lovely Korean ceramist Bomi Lee at her atelier and it is such an honor and pleasure to have her unique and beautifully handcrafted porcelain work for our gallery! We would have loved to select all of her work, but we decided for some special pieces. Thank you so much again Bomi, your work is so very wonderful!

Sneak peek of interior project House CAL II

We proudly presents the first results of our interior project House CAL II. There are still a few things to build in and to decorate, like the whole kitchen and some furniture, but the most renovation work is done and this beautiful old stone house got its modern make over by keeping its old structure and details. 

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT LEIPZIG LINDENAU

We were hired by our client from London and working together with a very kind architect here in Leipzig for this wonderful interior project in Leipzig Lindenau. This project is so exciting and special for us and we are very curious how everything will turn out at the end. For now we took over responsibility for the floor plan and general moods for three different sized attic spaces. We are very excited how this project will develop in 2016. Maybe you will have the chance to to see and feel these spaces on your own...but we don't want to tell too much for now!

TAKTIL

For the Lookbook of a small high quality Swiss card manufacturer, which produce cards out of hand painted Japanese paper, we were responsible for art direction, location scouting, styling and photography. Soon you will find the results on our website!

STUDIO OINK : STUDIO AND GALLERY SPACE

We are very pleased that the renovation of our studio and gallery space is taking shape more and more. Of course there is still a lot of work which has to be done, like building a kitchen, workspace and furniture, but we are happy, that the most terrible work is over now.

We would be happy if you stop by in 2016 whenever you are in Leipzig!
