UMÉ Studio Unveils

New Limited Edition Items

International design studio UMÉ Studio, recognized for its ability to meld an appreciation for traditional craft with contemporary tastes and to delicately balance between the worlds of art and design, is pleased to unveil its latest series of limited edition items. Informed by designers Mei-Lan Tan and Victor Lefebvre’s nomadic lifestyle, learning from artisans trained in century-old skills and techniques, the pieces intentionally blur the line between art and craft.
Recently named to the Dwell 24, a collection of two-dozen, up-andcoming designers to watch according to Dwell Magazine, Tan and Lefebvre have quickly made a name for themselves as multidisciplinary design practitioners, known for drawing upon their experiences at cutting-edge firms Herzog & de Meuron and Kengo Kuma. They develop new works slowly and mindfully with the intention of designing each object from the standpoint of its making, as well as its historical, societal and experiential meaning. The results are items that question function to become singular experiences.
As a growing multidisciplinary practice with works that span objets d’art to larger furnishings and architecture, Tan and Lefebvre’s considered approach explores how beauty and function can interact and even shift over time regardless of the scale of the work. What remains consistent is that each work is imbued with a sense of story and wonder that allows it to be experienced as a work of art.
Following a debut collection focused on objects for the everyday, the studio is expanding its focus into limited edition items and furniture. Inspired by a year and half of “nomadic” design and collaborations on three continents, in cities as diverse as Oakland, Ubud and Versailles, the new series of timeless pieces are imbued with the ideas of ritual and craft. They tell stories and are more than just objects—they are experiences worth remembering.
