I O I A
I O I A is an Amsterdam / London based design studio, founded by Ionie Chamilaki and Titia Dane. The duo is always in search of new eye candy made of surprising materials. Their recent experiment, 2½ D, will make you want to dive head first into a pool of colorful foam.
Ionie and Titia are obsessed with the possibilities of foam forms for indoor spaces. The work is an exploration of the boundaries of material and product design, "the moment when object becomes space or surface."
Imagine these hanging from the ceiling or draped from the wall. The art is meant to be a room divider and connecter.
The result offers a refreshing mix of lines, shapes, colors and coatings that are "surprising to the eye and confusing to the hand".
