ZAKKIA is a Sydney based studio, founded by Swede-turned-Sydneysider Sara Lundgren. ZAKKIA is essentially a point where Sara’s Swedish upbringing surrounded by design, and her love of natural materials meet. These influences along with a love of handcrafted objects are the foundations of each ZAKKIA design.
ZAKKIAs makers are all family-owned studios located mostly in Vietnam, with a couple in India as well. They have very open relationships and love the fact that they are a part of the whole design process, often giving ZAKKIA advice about certain materials from their own experiences.
The material is really the guiding force behind many of their designs. Their inspiration often comes from a material’s texture, or thinking about using a material in a way that hasn’t been done before. ZAKKIA find beauty in function and is always trying to design products that can be used in multiple ways in many rooms of your home.
