EDUCATION

Roser: Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts Staub: The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland

Susanne Roser and Martina Staub debuted as Diiis Designstudio in 2015, and in the scant years since have introduced a slew of clever, sophisticated pieces for the home—from Sedo, a combination hand mirror, container and jewelry box, to Glaubi, a coat hanger that offers much more than a place to hang a hat (think mirrors and rotating surfaces for keys). Working with quality organic materials, the pair are winning accolades, including a recent nomination for the 2018 German Design Awards. —MEGHAN DWYER
