The small object and furniture collections of STUDIO OINK, which are mostly produced in limited editions, move on the threshold between art and design.

STUDIO OINK, founded in 2013 by interior designer Lea Korzeczek and product designer Matthias Hiller, inspires its international clients with tailor-made high-quality interior concepts for private and public spaces.

Her credo is fulfilled in finding a successful balance between poetry and function, between simplicity and playfulness.

In 2000, the furniture designer took over a workshop area of the cotton spinning mill Leipzig in order to realise his furniture designs in wood.

Since 2011, he has also been exhibiting the works of artisans friends of him in this charming ambience under the label Black and White Design. Torsten Franke is a trained piano maker who began his apprenticeship in 1980 at the Blüthner company and is still working there today, now only part-time.

He is interested in the interplay of construction, design and function, which characterises his own collection of furniture and lamps, which is remarkable in terms of craftsmanship and design.

The design creates a free, undogmatic approach, the craft is the basis.

Andreas Mikutta, as a trained carpenter and studied wood and product designer, combines both areas in his furniture: "Natural materials – the smell, the haptic quality, the power that lies within them are the driving force in the creation of my works."

As a simple interpretation of a theme, his products fit into existing environments and are so universal that they are not tied to a specific place, but always relate to people.
