Before they were designers, and before they created their own design studio in 2006, John Arndt and Wonhee Jeong Ardt were doing other things. John, a Wisconsin native, was a potter, sculptor, and cabinet maker. Wonhee, originally from Seoul, Korea, was also a sculptor. Realizing they were designers as well, they founded StudioGorm in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and have since relocated to Eugene, Oregon. Crafting and constructing in their workshop, the duo produce smart, comfortable designs — the kinds of things you develop a familiarity and intimacy with. For us, they’ve crafted this week’s Playlist, giving us a chance to explore their work’s musical accompaniment. Take a listen.
