‘By experimenting with advanced design and production technologies, the Israeli-born, London-based designer Assa Ashuach redefines both the form and function of everyday products and furniture, while developing a surreal new design aesthetic’

Founded in London 2003 Assa Ashuach Studio focuses on three main areas:
1. Design and manufacturing of lighting, furniture and lifestyle products
2. Research and Consultancy within the progressive digital design and manufacturing methods, specialising in the polyamide materials and the wide range of the additive layers manufacturing technologies, offering coding of dedicated 3D design and engineering tools as part of the studio unique and innovative methodologies.
3. Self production of limited edition studio pieces, using new design and production methods to achieve unique forms and aesthetic qualities.
The studio today includes a network of highly skilled specialists from the design, science and manufacturing sectors, using dedicated 3D software development, electronics and engineering as an integrated part of its design methodologies and philosophy.
‘I see my design methods as a dynamic strategy, applied within the visual, physical and social layers of the design process, from concept generation and development of complex mechanisms to interaction scenarios with high cultural and aesthetic value’
