Studio vit design objects for everyday use, for simple functions such as to give light, to deliver sustenance. They want their products to elevate these small everyday rituals, to be useful, satisfying and to be generous. But more than that, they explore less explicit functions: studio vit designs are also intended to create stillness and make space, around which the bustle of everyday life can exist. Studio vit describe their products as ‘making room for life’, atoning for a loud world.
Helena and Veronica of studio vit are Swedish and whilst their work is not typical, there are discernible qualities to their designs and their practice that speak of a Scandinavian inheritance; reduction of form, a visual lightness and simplicity. The culture of Japanese making has long inspired studio vit. In these traditions studio vit see a contemplative and reflective manner of working that mirrors their own practice. Studio vit value the unapologetic attribution of poetry to everyday objects that is a part of Japanese culture, something that their catalogue of designs expresses also.
