Oskar Peet (NL/CAN) and Sophie Mensen (NL) are both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven (2009). After graduation Oskar Peet was working for several years at studio Scholten & Baijings and Sophie Mensen freelance work for different studios. Oskar and Sophie started for themselves as studio OS ∆ OOS in the Autumn off 2011. Both live and work currently in the city of Eindhoven the Netherlands.OS ∆ OOS is a design studio for small objects to larger spacial concepts; they try to find the balance between form, material and their relation to the surroundings and the user. For the duo it is the constant search to find the essence in the complex that drives them, taking an initial concept and working it into an objects that conveys only what is meant to. The majority of Studio OS & OOS work borders the line of design (in the industrial/ functionality sence) and autonomous objects; best described as contemporary objects derived from concept, yet rationalised to give them purpose. They feel it is very important that the objects are able to show a clear form language and without prior knowledge of the concept behind them it should be able to communicate, not only in it’s physical form but also in the manner it is to be used. The conclusion of these efforts results in neither a product nor pure artistic expression but a culmination of the both. A product where art/industry.
