Sofia Souidi, born in Kassel, is a German product designer.  After graduating

from the Royal College of Art in London Sofia founded her Studio in Berlin. Her work ranges from contemporary furniture and lighting to material research and development. Sofia Souidi's design 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 processes behind the product. Some show traces of production like the material development Superwood.  Others reinterpret the use of familiar things like the jojo lamp. Her projects have in common an experimental approach, a passion for material and curiosity for new technologies.

 

The studio has worked with international companies like Ligne Roset, Fraunhofer Institut and Ikea. Her projects have won numerous international awards like the 2&1 award 2018 (best of best), the pure talent award 2020 (third prize) and the award for environment and new energies 2021 (winner).
