Our Story

AVANDI is a Brooklyn-based contemporary studio that designs and manufactures a selection of home goods and jewelry inspired by sustainable solutions and modular systems. AVANDI generates durable products that seamlessly blend technology and craft. AVANDI's profoundly versatile designs thrive in a nomadic space, shifting their function to meet your needs, merging with your lifestyle while adding a bit of fun and playful elements.

Ariane van Dievoet is the designer and creator of AVANDI. Heavily influenced by her Belgian roots, her designs are honest and sophisticated. Ariane’s passion for traveling and discovering different cultures brought her from Brussels to London where she studied Interior & Spatial Design (Chelsea College of Art & Design) and to North America for her Interior Architecture studies (RISD). Ariane felt inspired and attracted to New York City’s energy, diversity and hands-on production principles which led her to her next venture, working with Brooklyn-based product & furniture design studio Bower. During that time she started developing her own ideas by pushing boundaries with different techniques and materials.

Her curiosity and love for experimentation led her to create her first collection, which was showcased at Milan Design Week in 2014. This experience made her stand out as one of the youngest designers to be recognized by the prestigious SaloneSatellite Award when she received 3rd prize for her ‘Steptool’ design.

AVANDI’s creations have exhibited in shows across the world, including New York, Brussels, Milan, Paris & London and have been featured in numerous publications such as Monocle, Interior Design, New York Magazine and Design Milk.
