ODD MATTER is a design studio driven by curiosity for all the strange and wonderful. Researching, probing, creating and exploring our world’s past, present and future through it’s materials, processes and concept.
The studio believes that by working with existing processes and notions, researching these from a different more naive perspective a different kind of products can be created. Unique and specific to the place they originate from.
Odd Matter are Dutch native Els Woldhek and Bulgarian Georgi Manassiev. They currently live and work in The Netherlands, after living in London for seven years, where the pair met whilst undertaking their MA studies in the Design Products department at The Royal College of Art. The pairs common interest in the borders of creation, process and material has put them on a shared path. One that operates across a wide range of disciplines and seeks to work with existing industries to create products, interiors, concepts or unique commissions more true and telling of their creation and ‘will’.
