“Design needs no explanation” is the watchword at Soda Designers. This creed inspires the team’s efforts to develop clear, understated products that unobtrusively support our daily rituals, perhaps even improving them a little. Nada Nasrallah and Christian Horner have been collaborating under the Soda Designers label since 2000. The pair studied at the Vienna University of Applied Arts and ENSCI/Les Ateliers in Paris. Their backgrounds and work experience before setting up Soda Designers make interesting reading.
Christian Horner is a trained carpenter and Nada Nasrallah a goldsmith. Each also draws on experience garnered at well-known studios and companies. Soda Designers products do credit to the studio’s motto. Their creations are an elegant, laid-back and highly functional accompaniment to everyday life. Numerous awards, nominations and exhibitions pay testimony to the team’s success. Nada Nasrallah and Christian Horner live and work in Vienna.
