Origin of OBJKT
OBJKT is a contemporary design ‘Atelier’ and manufacturing house focused on transforming the lines between the fields of architecture and industrial design. OBJKT was founded in early 2020 in Singapore with satellite studios in New York and Goa.
OBJKT’s values are focused on design rigor, flexibility, sustainability, innovation and intelligence. We adopt these ideals in the things we make, the process of making them and our operations. As an ‘Atelier’ we are driven by a continuous quest for new perspectives and insights, brought to life through great design, cutting-edge technology, and responsible manufacturing. We pride ourselves by constantly exploring innovative methods to reinterpret tradition, culture, and heritage imbibing these attributes into a ‘Living’ contemporary lifestyle by being– The Living Atelier!
Each OBJKT is designed in Singapore, then upscaled in collaboration with industry-leading factories, highly detailed craftsmen, and material specialists. Every design process begins with a primary focus on the collaborative effort between manufacturer and designer, as well as the industry and the mass market. The Duo hopes to put greater emphasis on this not-new relationship to inspire emerging designers to relearn the way we design.
