Even the smallest thoughts, incidents or trends can become something big one day. But no matter the scale of a project, usability, detailing and good craftsmanship should always be paramount in the design.
Noidoi Design Studio came to life in 2013 after two ambitious designers collided at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design and decided to joined forces to live out their shared dream of creating objects with personality and a long life-span.
Noidoi is Romanian and means “the two of us”. The name refers to the two bright heads behind the design studio, Cosmin who was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, and Kathrine, who spend most of her childhood in Gjøvik, Norway, and two years in Sri Lanka as well. Today, the two of them are located in the little town of Kapp, which is right next to Norway’s biggest lake and surrounded by all the classical virtues of Scandinavian nature.
In 2014, Noidoi Design Studio received the “young talents” award from the Norwegian Design Council, and they have already been exhibiting on grand design scenes in Stockholm, London, Milano, New York and Romania. As a design studio and duo, Noidoi keeps an open mind to new challenges and materials when designing. Their inspiration emanates from new trends in society such as urbanisation and the need for smarter and more flexible solutions as spaces grow smaller and natural resources become more scarce
