STUDIO OINK creative lab will be part of Salone del Mobile 2018 in the vibrant district 5Vie.
"Now you see us" is a collection of independent works by STUDIO OINK, combining both disciplines of interior and product design showing in a real life situation. "Now you see us" is dedicated to reality, to the real life.
Today’s world is shaped by an anonymous communication through several social media channels and interaction through the world wide web. It is a big chance to be visible to people around the world. But its not reality and something is missing.
What does it mean for a designer?
First of all, it means that everything is possible. Realities can be formed, cropped and filtered. Pictures and words can be well chosen and selected. But what is missing, is an honest feeling, a personal impression, experiences through all our senses and last but not least an interaction with the designer itself.
Every single piece we create is strongly connected to us and our interpretation of our surrounding and situations we felt touched by.
Often it is difficult for a beholder to feel exactly the same like we do while observing a piece we create, without having the chance to meet us in reality as well. The connection to the designed work gets deeper through an interaction with the designer itself. Through our appearance we are connected to the objects and spaces we design. There is no false reality.With our exhibition „Now you see us“ we want to invite you to interact with us and our work to have the chance to experience them in the same way we do and how they are meant to be.
Moreover we want to give you a chance to tell us what you want us to design and what you are missing in your real life. We would love to get in touch with you and to work out an object / furniture, which is not only related to us, but strongly connected with you.

We are looking for a high motivated and inspiring intern!
We thought it was spam when we got the request from COS . But then we read "editorial request" and couldn't trust our eyes! COS felt inspired by our work, which makes us very very proud and happy! Thanks so much for the feature on your blog about our project "Design with the unknown", which we showed in Milan 2016. Our week couldn't have start better!
"City populations are constantly growing and yet the spaces that they occupy often remain static. This means that we must learn to use urban space more creatively in order for everyone to engage with city life. By rethinking the gap between private and shared spaces always with smart architectural solutions in mind, we can reconcile this growth with a sense of community. Micro neighborhoods can evolve, living spaces will become increasingly modular, mobile or temporary and our understanding of how communities are structured in relation to their urban surroundings will be forever changed.
The Sooner Now is an initiative by MINI and Freunde von Freunden that functions as a platform featuring exceptional visions for the future. Connected by the desire to understand, reflect and shape the developments in urban life, The Sooner Now regards itself as a forum for continual dialogue and inspiration. Focused on personal stories and passionate projects, the initiative goes beyond the physicality of the hosting cities and events, instead opening up paths of joint participation in shaping a better life in the city."
Next week, on Thursday 16th of November 2018, we are invited to join the conference "the sooner now" created by Freunde von Freunden and MINI . As a panelist we will talk about new ideas for a minimal, experimental life in the city and how this life change is changing our architecture. Looking very forward to this event and hopefully meeting some of you!

We are working on the realization of the new atelier for Franziska Klee . After setting the main concept and working out the colour scheme, we are responsible for the construction and renovation process. Looking very forward to the beautiful result for this atelier here in Leipzig.
Working on the finish of our custom designed STUDIO OINK table TIB. Testing colour matches and working out the last details of the thin frame construction. The top will be also available in wood. Soon more. If you already want to pre- order your own TIB table: Just drop us a line!
Finally the layout is set and the colour scheme fixed for our interior project in Frankfurt / Main. Beside planning and working out the kitchen cabinets, we've chosen furniture and lamps and are now working on a custom made wall light and the last details. We really enjoyed planning this kitchen with colour splashes and a very sophisticated look. The tiles were already given, so we've chosen a colour which fit to the tiles and set a contrast to their historical and traditional appearance to create a timeless and contemporary look. The renovation is going to start soon and we are very curious to see the final outcome.
Working on this beautiful furniture which is made for children and adults. As a multifunctional furniture you can stick the back parts of the sofa wherever you like to create a sofa, a récamière or a playground for babies and kids. The four mattresses can be used as a warmer underground above the red felt. The furniture comes with two legs in different sizes: a lower size for the use as a playground and a higher size for the use as a sofa. The light aluminum parts are powder coated and the base and legs are made of ash wood. On the floor plan you can see the boxes for storing toys and miscellaneous. This furniture is part of our interior concept and draft for a beautiful villa here in Leipzig.
Working on an interior concept for a kitchen in Frankfurt / Main. As the floor tiles are already given, we are working on a basic colour scheme which fits to the traditional tiles and create a modern, yet sophisticated atmosphere. The floor plan itself is very tiny and difficult, so it needs a clever concept to create some storage space without having a cluttered and voluminous kitchen.
Colour concept and floor plan not yet confirmed.
