anooi: a nourishing intent

anooi is an interior design and content creation studio committed to shaping a nourishing relationship between people and nature through design.


design shapes the world

At anooi studio, interior design is more than aesthetics.

Designing spaces is a responsibility towards the people that inhabit them as well as towards the planet that hosts us all.
At anooi studio, spaces become nourishing environments designed with care and respect for our planet, positive experiences that engage the senses and reconnect people with nature.
Designing spaces is a responsibility, but it’s also the opportunity to shape a better future for us and for our planet.

embracing a biophilic approach to design, anooi studio places people and nature jointly at the heart of every project

Spaces are designed as wellbeing-centered environments that double as means to restore a deep and balanced relationship with the natural world. A relationship that’s nurturing and instructive at once, that supports our physical and mental wellbeing while reminding us of our relative place in the world.

caring about nature also means respecting and protecting it through design choices

That’s why anooi studio follows a slow approach to design: one that ponders all choices to make sure they’ll last while constantly researching environmentally and socially conscious design solutions. On this same note, anooi studio also curates, a fully independent and content-driven platform dedicated to sustainable interior design options.

behind the name

anooi (ah · noo · e) stands for a nourishing intent.

Like a silver lining, a nourishing intent describes my story as well as my design approach.
It represents my commitment to always follow a professional journey that makes me feel fulfilled, stimulated, and happy…in a word, nourished. A nourishing intent is also the light that guides my design approach. My mission to design spaces that feel good, nourishing those who inhabit them. And my commitment to sustainable design, supporting the transition to a world where design does good beyond people, nourishing the natural world we all depend upon.

Overall, my story and my work are connected by one common objective, a promise I made to myself when I started my journey in interior design and that I make every day to my clients and my community:

Hi, I’m Silvia!

I love nature (I always have) and I’ve always felt that spaces had an impact on people beyond the aesthetics (experiencing this on myself first, then confirming it with studies and research).

Over time, these apparently distant things have come together into a vision of the world where people, nature and design are tightly woven together. A vision that is now the mission of my studio: nourishing people and nature through design.

If you’ve been following along for a while you might be familiar with the former name of the studio: dfordesign.
The evolution into anooi studio comes from a desire to better express what drives me as a person and as a designer. For me, a ‘nourishing intent’ isn’t just a headline. It is something that grows from the inside - being the very reason why the studio exists - and unfolds towards the outside, guiding what I do and how I do it. The evolution into anooi studio has not been a marketing exercise but it has come from within, and I could do nothing but embrace it, fully and deeply.
