DFDI is an award winning design studio
Developing spatial solutions, furniture designs and new product typologies.
We create innovative solutions where each concept embraces our client’s identity, values and needs.
DFDI’s portfolio includes a diverse range of international projects for private and commercial clients
From large scale hospitality operations to bespoke fashion boutiques, Co-working spaces to private residences, bespoke furniture to disposable cutlery and more
When working on any creative project, a key is understanding the client’s needs (not always what they are asking for) and the context of the project.
Keeping the answers to these questions brief and concise so they serve as reference points throughout the development of the project.
Any line, surface, material or decision can be confronted with these, and their relevance judged easily,
Thus making the creative process one which is broken to simple
questions and answers effortlessly understood by and communicated to any person.
Working solely on styling can result a very superficial and short lasting
The work is about confronting a situation, problem or a need through
a process, eventually coming up with the right solution for the situation
(at times styling can be that solution)
Which has to fulfill the needs of the client, the constraints of the budget / site and the dreams of the user.
Usually when talking about inspiration it is implied that given the right settings good ideas will just burst out.
We all respond to stimulations, these responses are sometimes relevant
to a project and sometimes less so,
Time and experience teach us how to filter these responses and use them in the right context.
