Sofia Souidi, born in Kassel, is a German product designer who works at the intersections of design, sustainability and technology. After completing her master’s degree at the Royal College of Art London, she founded her studio in Berlin.

 

Her designs can be characterized as clear and functional, at the same time her projects often have an individual element that tells a story. This enables to understand the processes behind the product. Some show traces of production like her material experiments in her Superwood project. Others reinterpret the use of familiar things like the yo-yo lamp. Her projects have in common a passion for material, a curiosity for new technologies and an experimental approach.

 

Studio Sofia Souidi has worked with international companies like Ligne Roset, Fraunhofer WKI, Aurora. The studios work ranges from unique, limited editions to large editions in industry. Sofia Souidis designs have won numerous international awards, including the 1&20 (1st prize), the Fraunhofer Residency (Winner) and the Eco Design Award (Finalist).
