anima ona is a design studio established in 2018 by Freia Achenbach (based in Stuttgart, Germany), Carlo Kurth (based in Hirschberg, Germany) and June Fàbregas (based in Barcelona, Spain).
Their work focuses on objects, installations and spaces that are mentally stimulating, inspire phantasies and enhance the perception towards materiality and shapes. With their playful and symbolic approach they strive for a higher consciousness in everyday situations and want to make their fascination with nature accessible to others.
The trio met at State Academy of Art and Design Stuttgart where they graduated with an industrial design diploma degree. Since 2018 they collaborate in commissioned as well as self-initiated projects.
Their different located workplaces play an important and nourishing part of their collaboration, allowing them to implement a wider vocabulary when working together.
In 2019 they were chosen as Finalist of Design Parade Hyères at Villa Noailles. Anima Ona´s projects have been exhibited around the world such as Milan, Paris, and Taipei.
