Aarhus-based OOOJA is a group of architects that was formed out of a passion for local architecture and design culture, and have participated in architecture projects on multiple levels – in practice and academia.
The team gets their ideas for their designs from a big “box” hidden in the back of their minds. They describe this box as full of pieces of design, shapes, materials, emotions and functions – things that furniture design are made out of. They also draw inspiration from dreams and images they have seen or heard about. All these ideas are stored, meshed together and re-organised on paper. As with all other creative works, only some end up being developed as furniture designs and others are stored back into the idea bank.
