Your design style in one word: Accent.
Favourite material: Currently, paper.
When your best ideas come to you: Jasna, in a bathtub; Noel, when experimenting at a studio.
Dear Human is Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O'Connell, a collaborative studio based in Montreal. Jasna, an Emily Carr fine arts graduate, grew up in Sarajevo, while Noel has spent an extended time in Asia and holds an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, with a focus in sculpture. The two met at an artist’s residency in Denmark in 2008, and are now partners in work and life.
Their creations walk the line between art and design, and are rooted in their common interests in world craft traditions, sustainable making, and unconventional material (re)use.
