Bleds-Design Studio is an engine for experimentation that uses design as a catalyst to evoke new desires, personal curiosities and new understandings. Jumping the so-called lines of design disciplines to create an alchemic mixture of knowledge and texture which adds to the rigorous interrogation and interwoven strategies within the evolutionary process of design. The goal within the design process is to create a product that has its own character and its own life. To inspire joy, to challenge preconceptions, to give insight to new understandings, and create truly unique yet strangely familiar experiences and environments.
BLDS operates on multiple design fronts. The studio’s interests and expertise range from architectural and interior design to product design and fabrication. Each project is approached through several conceptual and practical filters or lenses, in order to achieve design excellence and utilize varying means of production.
