How could Oink com be improved

Oink lights

Lea Korzeczek and Matthias Hiller set up apartments and houses as Studio Oink, always cautiously elegant, but never boring. For example, they gave this old pastor's mill apartment a sense of calm and lightness with lots of white, gray and wood. Korzeczek is a studied interior designer, Hiller has focused on industrial design. Now the couple has launched a limited furniture collection. “Slow is the new fast” is the name of the five-product collection; including a stool, a table lamp, two floor lamps and a carpet. “For our collection, we wanted to focus on local materials,” the duo explains.

That is why Studio Oink relies on wood and stoneware; to “natural materials with good technical properties and a strong charisma.” The feet of the stool and the lights are made of turned oak (which smells wonderful, by the way!), the lampshade and the seat of the stool are made of ceramic. “This creates a very pleasant, warm and indirect light,” says Lea Korzeczek. "In addition, the material is extraordinary in such a context and usually only recognizable as such at second glance."

Soft colors and furniture that do not intrude - at Studio Oink are not boring, but downright excitingly calming. For AD, the Leipzig studio is one of the 17 whose work we will be eagerly following in 2017.
