“Studio Proba's approach to design is witty, charming and light. Their furniture pieces, rugs, sculptures, murals and posters all exude a tremendous warmth and energy.”
Founded in 2013 by Alex Proba, Studio Proba is a Portland and New York-based multidisciplinary design studio focusing on brand design, art direction, product design, illustration and murals. Alex Proba's creativity evokes emotion as a celebration of color, pattern and positive stimulation of the senses. The designer draws from the everyday for her designs and artwork: visuals, sounds, smells and memories. Born in Germany into a family of doctors, Proba went on to study Spatial Design (architecture and graphic design) at Akademie Mode und Design Hamburg, Germany, and Contextual Design (furniture & product) at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Netherlands.
