Relentlessly honest objects

De Studio products have nothing to hide, they're completely stripped down, relentlessly honest. We believe that things can be simple, undecorated, raw, have imperfections, show what they’re made of, and be more beautiful because of it.

We use materials in raw form. Meaning they're not covered with layers of paint or plastic, which means our products are easier to recycle and repurpose. It also means that we allow them to live and age. We believe this is an essential part of their beauty.

The beauty of honesty

We take our time to make sure we're always heading in a more sustainable direction. We're not driven by profit but by respect for everything that is. We consider more so that we end up with less. Less waste and less environmental impact.

Our products don't have hard to reach or glued shut areas. No tricks or gimmicks in their structure and assembly. They’re very easy to repair and repurpose. What you see is what you get. This is what we celebrate, the beauty of honesty.
