Os & Oos is a space and object design studio whose aim is to find a balance between shape and material and between the user and their environment. From a simple concept that needs to be developped, the studio's research results in a functional and minimalistic object that must be immediately recognizable and that does not require any foreknowledge. This process delivers results that are neither a functional product nor a sheer artistic expression but the combination of those two things - an object stretching the boundaries between art and industry.
