NIYONA is an independent studio created in 2010 specialized in the design and production of high-end leather goods, combining sound expertise with a taste for the unusual. Approaching craftsmanship in a refreshing way -while pushing the boundaries of creative design and actual manufacturing- NIYONA takes on innovative and exciting projects, which reflect its core values and unique savoir faire. Playing with the idea of the mad scientist, the whole team loves to experiment with leather and enjoy themselves, turning NIYONA into an unconventional research lab. Based in the centre of Brussels (Belgium), the studio has the ability to carry out individual projects from start to finish, allowing them to be designed, developed and produced in-house. Imagined as an interactive and dynamic platform, NIYONA is as comfortable with one-of-a-kind artistic works as it is with larger scaled orders, given its flexibility as an independent company. NIYONA has developed customized projects and created exclusive leather goods for the likes of Maison Vervloet, Florentine Kitchen Knives (ES), designer Jean-François d’Or, architects Dieter Vander Velpen, Arjaan de Feyter, the creative duo Lernert&Sander (NL), the restaurants : Bon-Bon**, LaPaix**, La Table de Maxime**, La Villa in the Sky**, Restaurant FRED** (NL), Thierry Marx*** (FR), Bozar Restaurant*, Couvert-Couvert*, Castor*, Substance* (FR)… master butcher Dierendonck & Carcasse* ; the hotels Chiltern Firehouse (UK), Four Seasons (KU) and many others.
