The Studio

The Studio

Located by the harbour in Copenhagen, Studio Arhoj is a Danish interior & design studio run by Anders Arhoj. Originally founded in Tokyo in 2006, Studio Arhoj is now based in Denmark.

In addition to exploring the visual relationship between Scandinavian simplicity and traditional Japanese culture we are interested in keeping alive traditions and knowledge about old crafts such as wheel throwing and glaze construction.

Our studio and design store are open to the public. For opening hours and location, please click here.

The Design

We design and produce new items on a regular basis - with the ambition to present something new around spring and fall every year.

Our products are developed on both paper and on the potters wheel. Materials used in production include wood, clay, porcelain, paper and glass.

Our main focus is form as opposed to function. This doesn't mean you can't use our items in your everyday life, it just means we're really focused and interested in creating beautiful, fun objects.

The Process

 

Experimenting is a deeply integrated part of our daily production. We dedicate a lot of time to discovering and testing the seemingly endless possibilities of glaze and clay. Failure is something we know well, however, when something works the reward is worth the struggle.

Many of our items are hand-thrown by skilled potters on the throwing wheel in different kinds of clay. Our porcelain items are cast in plaster molds by skilled artisans.

Residents and visitors to Copenhagen are welcome to come by our studio on Islands Brygge to see the team in action and browse through our items in the Studio Arhoj Design Store. For opening hours and location, please click here.
