o4i design studio was founded in 2005 by MFA Senior Design Partners Henrik Kjellberg and Jon Lindström, who first met while studying at Konstfack University College of Arts Craft and Design in Stockholm, Sweden 1996.
Over the coming years the duo collaborated in various furniture projects and their intensified collaboration urged them to ultimately set up their own design studio: o4i (Short for: office for ideas).
“We have a multidisciplinary approach to product design based on modern industrial parameters in the context of responsible mass production. We are driven by a curiosity for new technology, behaviours, materials and processes and find as much joy in exploring the possibilities of improvement within given strict limitations as we do in seeking the solutions that challenge what’s expected.
We believe in observation, conversation and collaboration. We believe 1 + 1 = 3.”
