ABOUT ZENZI OBJECTS
CONSCIOUSLY CRAFTED DESIGN OBJECTS
ZENZI Objects is the new home for carefully curated design objects that combine utility with warm aesthetics, organic shapes with simple geometries. And most importantly: that are created by people who appreciate their craft and the materials they use.
Here, at ZENZI Objects, you are offered a personal selection of unique objects from various crafts and techniques, made either by ZENZI Objects or by our partners. These partners are emerging artists, like-minded makers, established craftspeople and independent businesses. As an antithesis to industrially produced objects, they create durable and high-quality objects with a distinctive design and a mindful approach to manufacturing.
All the objects you see here are one of a kind due to their manual production and are only available in small quantities of one design or as unique pieces.
ZENZI Objects was founded and is curated by me: Teresa Köster, a Berlin-based art historian and design lover, working as a brand and communications specialist with a focus on sustainability and craftsmanship.
I have always been fascinated by handmade objects – I admire the creativity and skill of the people behind them. That's why, over the past two years, I've been on the lookout for craftspeople and artists whose objects have what it takes to become beloved treasures in our homes. In addition to my own sculptural candles, a personally curated selection of their work is available at ZENZI Objects.
I hope that ZENZI Objects will be a place of inspiration and the starting point for a shared, lasting appreciation of the beauty of handmade and mindful production.
By the way, in case you are wondering what the name is all about: ZENZI is the short form of my middle name “Krescentia” and the nickname from my childhood.
