From conception through production, we make ethical design a baseline for our practice at STUDIOOSS. This means we consider the ecological footprint of our materials and process from the start of every project, and we find creative ways to reduce that footprint.
As a rule, STUDIOOSS commits to sourcing sustainable materials for all of our editions and packaging. We work hard to source materials that are recycled and/or naturally ecological from companies that have strong environmental records and are clear and transparent about their products, standards, and partners.
We also rigorously practice material reuse. We make our OSS Editions in-house, and we keep all scraps generated from production to use as materials for STUDIOOSS packaging and for the making of future work.
Our limited edition pop-up book, The Dining Room, generated some amazing paper off-cuts that we decided to incorporate into the design of our OSS Editions packaging. The offcuts went into making custom-made slipcases for the editions. No two are the same, and we think in this case, our case makes a beautiful case for art inside and out.
We've got some other projects up our sleeves with offcuts and end pieces... Stay tuned for what we're up to with our linen scraps – we're smitten and hope you will be too.
