Founded in Neuveville, Switzerland, in 1991 by Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis and Patrick Reymond, atelier oï has been striving to dissolve barriers between genres and foster cross-disciplinary creativity for 20 years. Over the course of their achievements, architecture, design and set design have intertwined on an international scale. Multidisciplinarity, team spirit and an intimate rapport with the material are their watchwords. Born of an intuitive and emotional affinity with the act of shaping different materials, their projects have been recognised the world over (winner of Europan 3, 1994; European Museum of the Year Award, 2001; iF Design Award, 2012; Living at Home Award, 2007; Product of the Year, Architectural Record, 2008). Between experimentation, cultural exchanges and events devoted to their creations, they design for Wogg, Roethlisberger, USM, B&B Italia, Foscarini, Bulgari, Bréguet, Swatch, Moroso and Louis Vuitton.
