Hour Series – designed for Bolia

201DesignStudio - Hour Series - Bolia

Very happy to share that a new series of products we designed for the new Bolia collection, has been released.

Hour series is an ode to time and a remainder that every moment can be treasured.

With this theme in mind, we drew inspiration from the object that resembles time the best way in our consciousness, the hourglass.

By decomposing the hourglass and reassembling it into an object that would still evoke its source of inspiration, we looked to achieve a sculptural aesthetic with strong volumes that would be contoured by shadows and light.

Compose – Shelving System for UBIKUBI – showcased at RDW Main Exhibition

This year we designed a new modular shelving system for Ubikubi and you can see the prototype of one of its many configurations in the main exhibition at Romanian Design Week.

Compose is a shelving system adaptable and suited for any environment where there is need for storage, be it an office, home or commercial spaces.

Drawing inspiration from the shelves used in industrial storage this system offers modularity in vertical and horizontal directions, giving freedom of choosing from many types of shelves, various vertical dimensions and color combinations.

Artisan Collection – new products presented at Romanian Design Week 2018

Artisan is a collection of small accessories and furniture pieces that draw inspiration from the furniture of the medieval fortified churches in Transylvania. Although strongly essentialized in products that answer the aesthetics and functions of modern times, the pieces of the collection embed elements of the traditional, retaining its spirit and gaining uniqueness through them.

The collection is a projection of past in present objects.

Artisan Collection was also among the top pick projects of the international special creative board in the product design section.

Our studio developed a new collection of bathroom furniture and accessories for Ubikubi.

Ferma bathroom collection is inspired and makes an analogy to one of the oldest instruments that helped humans to fetch and transport water, the bucket. The collection consists in a free standing washbasin, a wall mounted washbasin, mirrors and stools that have a towel holder integrated in their seating.
