201 Design Studio

201 Design Studio - Designers

201 Design Studio, founded by Mira Ene and Codrin Stanciulescu, activates in the field of product design since 2012. Working on small and large scale products, developing them in regard to function, form and production is our main aim. At the core of the studio’s creative process is the understanding of the interaction between user and object.

Designing new products that distinguish themselves through functionality, interactivity and detailing is the studio's main expression.

A novel and responsible use of materials together with the optimization of the whole manufacturing process of an object are also concerns of our studio.

During our studies we designed our first product, the Axteroid lamp (2009), which won second place at a competition held by ELLE Decoration Romania and the Silver A’Design Award for Lighting Products.

As a young studio we started collaborating with manufacturing companies on developing new products that we exhibited at various fairs and exhibitions, both national and international.

The products that we developed in this incipient period were mostly an exercise of ergonomics, multi functionality and interaction between user and product.

These early works, the exhibitions and design competitions helped us experiment, gain experience and define our new direction.

201DesignStudio - Objects

In 2015 we started collaborating with Ubikubi for their first collection as a brand. The first product we developed for them was LightTale, a floor lamp that was inspired by a type of windmill used to pump water. Since then we had the pleasure of collaborating every year on new products for the collections they released.

Officers, a collection of useful work space accessories, represents the start of a series of objects designed and produced by our studio.

The belief for which we stand, as to these accessories, was one of creating products that would stand out in their simplicity, dedication to functionality and adaptability to an ever changing work environment.

As a studio, we keep collaborating with clients into bringing new meaningful products to the market, products that have the recyclable and long lasting features embedded in them and that get the right balance between function, ergonomics, means of production and aesthetics.
