Amsterdam design firm Studio DeSimoneWayland was originally founded as Little Owl Design in 2010 by Marcello De Simone and Bruce Wayland.
A shared background in art history, fine art, and affinity for different cultures informs Studio DeSimoneWayland's designs.
We find inspiration in many sources and reinterpret these in our way to create new interior aesthetics for the XXI century.
We continually aim to create designs that diverge from our references so that they read as both modern and sophisticated, while also remaining innovative and unexpected.
In a time when almost anything can be instantly reproduced, we aim to create designs that tell a story.
For instance, our first wallpaper designs were inspired by the skies over Holland.
We combined own photographs from our trips around The Netherlands with XIX century etchings of the Dutch sky to create designs that are personal yet historical.
Our business comprises four main categories:
- Visual Merchandising
- Wall Art
Our wallpapers and Visual services are produced under our Studio DeSimoneWayland brand.
Our Altered Perspectives, Altered Histories- and ceramics are created under our Atelier DeSimoneWayland name.
