Archive Studio is a design studio with a focus on high quality durable products that are used on a daily base. The first collection of stoneware ceramics is unique for its double layer of clay that enables different finishes on the inside and outside of the product. The outer layer has a soft-sanded finish, preserving the original texture of the clay. The inside has an ivory white layer of glaze that perfectly protects the product. “Start small, grow slowly. That’s our philosophy. We slowly expand our archive of ceramics and make sure that each new item perfectly fits in the existing range. Our users do not have to rush either. All products remain available on the long run so there is no need to urgently compose an entire set. Instead the users can compose and grow their own collection over time. All Archive Studio products are handmade in a Vietnamese workshop. The cooperation with this small producer has been recognized by the EU as a program supporting the local economy and has exempt us from paying import duties. We visited the workshop in January 2018 and it feels great to work with such an authentic and dedicated supplier.”
