OTZI is a design studio founded by Otis Ingrams in East London.
OTZI was born out of a need to work with the hands and a desire to design timeless, functional and durable items that people engage with on a daily basis. At our core is a belief in simple design that showcases honest and beautiful materials, creating objects with integrity.
Working to individual briefs, OTZI promotes close working relationships with designers, interior designers, artists, makers and brands to create unique and functional pieces. OTZI facilitates the making of both small and large quantities for private and commercial purposes. We believe that both handmade and mass produced products demand an equal level of design and craft.
OTZI is committed to sourcing, developing and utilising materials, using both traditional and contemporary techniques. This is based in a belief that natural and sustainable materials have intrinsic value and idiosyncratic characteristics that synthetic materials cannot produce. OTZI uses craft techniques wherever possible for the superior results they produce.
