atelier oï was founded in 1991 in La Neuveville, Switzerland, by Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis and Patrick Reymond. The name oï, derived from the Russian word “troïka” , a team of three, conveys the dynamism and holistic energy generated by a trio. atelier oï is the result of an alliance rooted in humanity and art alike. It is about sharing values and ideals. The trio has been linked for 30 years through the intangible bond of the desire to grow and venture together on a journey that never denies their individual paths. The alliance brings together open and creative minds, sharing their visions. The founders’ deep involvement with architecture, design and naval construction, as well as the encounter with charismatic personalities such as Alberto Sartoris and Ettore Sottsass, have shaped atelier oï’s philosophy. It strives to go beyond the confines of a single discipline. At atelier oï, the idea of multidisciplinarity is epitomised by the word “atelier” , a place of creation, intellectual knowledge and manual know-how. On an international scale its work ranges from architecture and interior design to product design and scenography.
