“We design simple, but take care with details,” says Clara del Portillo of Studio Yonoh’s approach. Indeed: Del Portillo and partner Alex Selma combine innovation with a pared-down aesthetic, experimenting with shape and materials while making every element count. There is nothing superfluous in the designs of the Valencia, Spain-based duo. But their work still exudes a playfulness and humanity absent in much minimalist fare. “You have to think how people will interact with the object,” says Del Portillo, “because you want them to want to use it every day.”
