Design studio “Upstairs Shop” was formed in 2013 by Product designer Pavel Sidorenko and graphic designer / ceramist Maria Sidorenko. It evolved from an overwhelming obsession and passion for well designed objects.
Throwaway-ism is so prevalent in contemporary culture – we are advocates of saving up for the piece that you love – these pieces will last a life-time and will be passed down to younger generations. Also we just love idea of reusing materials and sustainable design. This is a truly Scandinavian concepts and is one that is instilled in every day life from a young age, the result is that they surround themselves with pieces that are well-made, functional and beautiful – usually with an interesting story to tell!
