Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a small independent design and production studio run by founder Anders Arhoj. They produce beautiful and charming Japanese inspired ceramics and hand-blown glass and are famed for their thick colourful glazes and playful characters.
Anders began his work in interiors and design while studying in Tokyo, Japan in 2005. After moving back to Denmark, he began operating a small design studio from his apartment in Vesterbro doing graphic work, identity, branding and kids illustration - and eventually moving into the world of ceramics.
By 2013 Anders was able to officially start Studio Arhoj in an old envelope factory in Islands Brygge, a former industrial and dockland area just outside central Copenhagen. In 2020 the studio relocated into the heart of Copenhagen where it currently resides with a glass blowing hot shop, ceramic pottery and a flag ship store.
Studio Arhoj release new products, limited edition pieces, and new glaze combinations and colours throughout the year. They work daily in the design and production team to manufacture and develop at the same time, in order to stay creative and never get too bored. This has led to the iconic Ghost figurine, the Familia ceramic range and more recently to a host of new characters with the hand-blown glass Blobs.
We love Studio Arhoj here at USTUDIO, we have even collaborated with them on a greeting card range and have an exclusive interview with their founder, Anders here.
