We first fell for Antipod Studio’s furniture designs at the Young Serbian Designers show back in 2010. Three years later, we’re still intrigued.

The design studio, comprised of three Serbian designers with varied backgrounds, was founded in Belgrade in 2007. The trio’s approach is multidisciplinary, encompassing architecture, interior design, and furniture design with a focus on, as the designers say, “simplicity, innovation, sincerity, adequacy, inconspicuousness, and sustainability.” Below are two Antipod designs that reflect just that–classic designs presented in a new light. For more information, visit Antipod Studio.
