Utopia & Utility was founded in 2012 by Finnish-German designer Pia Wüstenberg.

In collaboration with European craftsman, her designs are produced to the highest standard with ethical values under her label Utopia & utility.

 
Pia Wüstenberg, Founder and Designer

 


"We work closely with various independent European makers for each of my objects, creating timeless and ethically valuable pieces that also contribute to a community of makers and creatives"



For 14 years now, the Stacking Vessels and other collectibles from U&U have made their way all around the world to prestigious boutiques, design exhibitions. They were shown in reputable places such as no 10 Downing Street (during the term of David Cameron), auction houses such as Sothebys and Phillips de Pury (London) and museums (Tate Modern and V&A). The Stacking Vessels are part of the permanent collection of the Shanghai Museum of Glass.

 

 

Everything we offer is shaped by the hands of a skilled maker.
Glass blowers, woodworkers, ceramicist, metal spinners, etc… are among the talents that are needed in our production, all working independently in small, specialised European workshops.
A Utopia & Utility product travels through many hands before it reaches our warehouse in Germany. Things need to fit together precisely to form the art pieces of Utopia !
