LoFi-Studio is a transdisciplinary design practice based in Brussels. Established by German product designer and interior architect Christiane Högner, it is a platform for projects ranging from objects and furniture to installations, as well as concept development, strategy, and graphic design.
“Lofi” or low-fidelity refers to the music genre, which uses an aesthetic that deliberately embraces little defects as a unique quality, in contrast to the increasing level of technology that is at hand. In this approach, Lofi Studio pursues an honest, no nonsense aesthetic, striving for authenticity and a high level of tactility. Using existing objects, combining new and old materials, and transforming known archetypes, Lofi Studio’s work is devoted to the familiar environment of everyday life.
Since 2011 Christiane is teaching at the multimedia design department of KASK - School of Arts in Gent.
In 2012-13 she was a guest teacher at Design Academy Eindhoven's MA social design department.
