Studio gorm is design office founded in 2007 by John Arndt and Wonhee Arndt. They design products, furniture, lighting, interiors and exhibitions. They work for a variety of international clients. Their designs are informed by their speculative academic research which explores culture, history and technology and how objects and ideas evolve to fit the needs of modern life. While they work as designers of functional objects they have backgrounds in sculpture and craft which strongly informs their work. Their methods are rooted in physical making where objects evolve out of an experimental constructive approach to design. Their products are simple practical and thoughtful, approachable forms designed for everyday life. Their office is based in Eugene Oregon where they are both professors in the Product Design Department at the University of Oregon.
