Atelier ARI is a Rotterdam based design office, founded in the summer of 2014. From out of a 19th century school building we design and experiment with a hands-on approach. We are constantly looking for surprising combinations and additions to the existing in order to create something special. Although trained as architects we operate in a wide range of spatial design, including public art installations, furniture design, interiors and architecture. The work of ARI is characterised by clearly organised design, always combined with a twist and much love for craftsmanship and aesthetics.
