Doshi Levien was founded by the top product designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, who met at the Royal College of Art. The London-based design studio is internationally well-known for its marriage of culture, technology, industrial design, and fine craftsmanship. One Hundred Edition brings to you some of their creative works!
“For me, I think the plurality of architecture, tradition, modernity, manufacturing, and everything happening around me, really influenced my approach to color.”
“I think in the way that we work, and the way we think about our work and our process is remarkably different. I think that probably has more to do with the contrast in our work, and how we complement each other.”
Doshi Levien’s work is so distinctive for their confident relationship to color, material, and form, and also for their ability to translate meticulous contemporary design ideas to the context of production.
The design studio struggles to create work that transcends rational and functional qualities, to infuse a sense of true inner beauty in their unique design projects.
Distinguished by their clarity of ideas and seemingly effortless attention to detail, Doshi Levien‘s artists are craftsmanship lovers always honoring design processes like painting, sculpting, and color making.
The design studio has created works for leading manufacturers and high furniture brands like B&B Italia, Moroso, Kvadrat, Kettal, and Cappellini, for prestigious international museums and cultural institutions, and for their Paris-based contemporary art gallery, the Galerie Kreo.
