Irène is a passionate designer, textile enthusiast, trend researcher, colour forecaster, visionary, mother of 2, and in love with nature. She is a winner of the Design Prize Switzerland and was awarded the Swiss Federal Design Prize three times. Thomas has a commercial background, worked in many countries and travelled to even more, getting to know the life and work traditions in Kathmandu/Nepal and developing the desire to create fair work and sustainable products. For a long time they were engaged in the creative power and diversity of design. With Studio 5, they are creating their own interior design line to combine creativity and sustainability.
We are mindful and respectful in everything we do. We highly admire natural materials and traditional craftsmanship, and want to bring out and preserve their unique qualities. We believe in the creation of fair work for more people. We love to work in partnerships, creating inspiration and trust.
