CIRCULAR DESIGN

The StudioVIX Products are designed according to the circular design principles:
aiming to maximize lifetime usage > minimizing waste, energy consumption and footprint > assuring material re-use, preserving its original values.

The StudioVIX manifest

We want to make products which last in their beauty & quality. We carefully select our materials, meeting human en environmental health standards. We aim for minimal material usage and material differentiation. Where more than 1 material is used they are easy to separate and replace. We use sustainable materials (steel, glass enamel, FSC paper / wood, recycled textiles), which are locally sourced.

Our products are designed in such a way that they require minimal space when transported (as that is an important footprint contributor). We consciously produce near our main markets; in the Netherlands. All parts of our products are easily replaceable to extend the product life cycle.

Biophilic design

The StudioVIX products are inspired by nature,
aiming to bring her energy into your space.

BIOPHILIC DESIGN

for well-being

Research shows time and time again that nature-based designs have a positive effect on our well-being: stress reduction, improved concentration, accelerated recovery from fatigue and diseases, making us feel more positive, happier. This on its turn improves social interaction, our energy management, how we view things (more positive), creativity and productivity.

RESEARCH

the effect of biophilic design on people

What biophilic designs can bring to well-being:

  • reducing stress; lowering blood pressure and heart rate (research findings of: Brown, Barton & Gladwell 2013; Van den Berg, Savory, State, 2007; Tsunetsugu & Myazaki 2005)
  • improving mental involvement and attention (Biederman & Vessel 2006)
  • reducing stress, increasing concentration and positively supporting our observations (Vessel, 2012; Joye, 2007)
  • having a positive influence on our sense of well-being (Barton & Pretty, 2010)
  • stimulating creativity and human interactions (A.F. Taylor, F. Kuo, W.C. Sullivan)
  • having a calming effect after a stressful experience, leading to a decrease in muscle tone, heart rate and skin conduction (R. Ulrich)

Ostriches (= Struis) are fast, sprinting up to 70 km / h thanks to their strong legs. They are social, living in groups with other savanna animals (disciplines) to complement each other’s senses (weaknesses). So ideal for innovation interactions and agile-scrum sprints !!

Beauty

“Beautiful, beautiful, what is beautiful? Beauty is powerful. Nature is always powerful. You never have a tree or a flower that is drowsy. What is formed in nature is super-efficient. There is a kind of logic in it that is the result of millions of years of evolution. That power, that logic must be in it. All good designs have that. ”  _ Joep van Lieshout_ artist
