A love for design
There is an easy reason why we started ZWEI Design. It’s because we LOVE DESIGN! We can’t help it; creating objects and sharing our aesthetic makes us happy!
Of course there also is a more complex idea behind ZWEI. We don’t believe that design should be exclusive – it should be accessible. As a young married couple, both fresh out of college, money was always an issue. There is nothing, both more inspiring and frustrating, than walking into Vitra and seeing all the beautiful designs created, and then to see the price tag. We are not saying design should not have its price, but we also long for objects that inspire us without having a price tag that’s more than our paycheck! 🙂
This is why we started ZWEI. To put people at the center of design – creating comfortable environments and long-lasting objects that bring joy and make people feel at home (without the hefty price tag!).
Design for us
Design was never only meant for the elite or the few. Design started out simply as craftsmanship. People who loved to create and loved what they did. People who were skilled, passionate and had a desire to make pieces with love and purpose. The first modern design movement started was most likely Bauhaus. The Bauhaus School of Design aimed to create pieces that could be mass produced and were accessible for everyone. The original idea of modern design did not exclude the masses, but rather designed for them. We at ZWEI want to go back to this type of design thinking. We want to design for people who see value in our work. We want the create pieces that are beautiful and affordable. We want to bring beauty and joy into your home.
