Sonika Studio focuses on quality, design and craftsmanship, on creating meaningful objects, "that makes sense". Our avant-garde bags combine minimalist aesthetics with a functional spirit. They compose our approach towards consumption to be thoughtful, committed and ethical.
Innovation is fundamental at Sonika Studio. We use quality material, envision unexpected shapes and design our bags not as fashion accessories, but as smart and functional design objects. Elegant and practical at the same time. The handbags are inspired by geometric shapes and ancestral techniques. Their minimalist design guarantees a timeless and elegant look.
From Budapest to Paris: itinerary of a designer
The founder and designer of Sonika Studio, Szonja (pronounced Sonia), Hungarian and Parisian, is coming from an industrial design background. She grew up in Budapest and chose to settle down in Paris after studying at the ENSCI Les Ateliers.
Creating and engaging are part of her DNA. After partaking in a start-up as Design Lead and heading bold projects at the French agency, 5-5 Design Studio, Szonja decided to return to her first love: the creation of handbags. A passion she had since childhood and shared it with her mother.
Thus was born in 2018, Sonika Studio, a fusion of design, craftsmanship and fashion, with its first collection of bags 'Aya'. As she promotes the idea of an object "that makes sense", she imagined these bags not as fashion accessories but as objects of design with a purpose: to settle in your life for good and become indispensible.
Convinced that design has the power to positively influence our feelings, she has created a surrealist and colorful universe, challenging herself to create modern, minimalist and timeless bags made by hand and in opposition to fast-fashion.
A Laboratory of objects
Sonika Studio is a design studio, a laboratory of objects. Creating objects and conceiving compositions of new decorative and functional forms are our favorite playgrounds. Our leitmotif is a continuous exploration and conception of design objects.
The future and new encounters will bring us these new stories that still have to be written. To be designed.
