We are Alicja Strzyzynska and Onur Iseri, life and work partners. The AOAO is an interdisciplinary studio combining art and design,.
We make sculptural pieces by experimenting with the functionality of sculpture and the meaning of furniture.
We value the emotional connection between the object and the user. In each piece, we seek the experience of intimacy – the metaphysical bond between a person and an object.
The studio was found by Alicja on 2020 in Amsterdam. The inspiration to follow this path was her own roots and her grandfather – an artist sculptor.
Alicja Strzyzynska completed Masters of Arts Degree in Product Design and Visual Communication at Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. She also finished bachelor Degree in Interior Architecture. Alicja previously worked in Tokyo with Torafu Architects and in Amsterdam with Tommy Hilfiger & Calvin Klein.
Onur Iseri completed Bachelor of Science in Business at Temple University in Tokyo. Onur worked in digital marketing and web design for several years.
