Aiio pronounced eye-oh is based in London
Inspired by the modernist ideals, where a studio for art and experimentation is brought together with a specific craft, Aiio creates visceral works that are informed by our ongoing creative practice and realised through collaboration with skilled artisans.
Each of our pieces are handmade to order. With an increasing interest in owning things that go beyond an anonymous mass production line, handmade and bespoke works have an inherent history and place. The provenance begins with us and the makers, and we issue an edition certificate with each piece, stating the edition number, date, and place it was produced.
Influenced by the mix of our British and Japanese heritage. We draw upon this connection to produce works that resonate with our observations of nature, habitat and culture. Identifying the natural and manmade world around us as collections of lines, shadows, shapes and contours, we find inspiration for form and material, responding to the interplay of what we see and our presence within it.
We believe all production means should be sustainable and ethical. Our rugs are carefully created and responsibly produced. We are a member of GoodWeave, which ensures that no child labour has contributed to the making of our works.
