nortstudio is an Antwerp based design studio focusing on furniture and lighting.
Exploration of materials and new techniques are at the core of our studio's practice.
Each new project makes us curious and is an opportunity to discover, learn and innovate.
Materials and techniques
We never stop wondering about materials. They are an essential part of the process: it is the notion of transformation during the process that gives direction and is in part what makes the outcome so exciting.
We are not afraid to experiment and push boundaries since we are always in search of the possibilities and limitations of materials and techniques.
Colour intrigues us. Why are some colours considered ugly? Why are some seen as appropriate at all time? We find it fascinating to combine colours and to see what happens next.
We incorporate colours, materials and techniques into our designs in unusual and surprising ways.
Nortstudio was founded by Jef De Brabander and Kathleen Opdenacker in 2016. Our studio and workshop is based in Antwerp, Belgium.
After working on our individual projects, we decided to team up and start working together. We immediately experienced the advantages of working as a couple. Complete trust, understanding each other and never blaming one another made it right from the start.
We are happy to share the design proces through social media with you, from the first idea to the final product.
