BENNITA & THE STUDIO
Having graduated in 2017 with a Masters in Design (Mdes) from the University of Brighton, Bennita now runs her own studio on the outskirts of Brighton.
Having a design-led background, Bennita knows what it means to make an impact. Since starting her own homeware brand in 2018, she has since used her skills and knowledge of the industry to create original products that stand out from the crowd.
MATERIALS & PROCESS
Every item is individually handcrafted to a very high quality and designed with the consumer and functionality in mind. Made from an eco-friendly composite Jesmonite, each item undergoes several technical processes which have been perfected over time using both traditional and contemporary craft techniques. From the initial casting of the materials to the final sanding, each process is necessary to achieve Bennita’s product signature style; a marbled aesthetic, smooth texture and hard-wearing finish. This enables all of her products to sustainably withstand use over a long period of time, which is exactly what you should expect from any high-quality product.
Our company ethics are simple, clean & fair practices equal a clean conscience. As a quality brand, this means we owe it to ourselves and our customers to be striving for the best. From the making of products to our packaging, we strive to be a planet friendly brand. As a society, we have a long way to go and many things to learn, but we feel that even a few simple choices can make a big difference. By creating quality, long-lasting/wearing products, we also hope to discourage a throw-away culture of cheaply/poorly made products. Encouraging consumers to invest in pieces that are made independently and in small batches such as ours is just one way to help both the environment and support small businesses.
Living in the Sussex countryside, Bennita takes inspiration for the colour and patterns in her work from the natural surroundings and seasonal changes in nature. This continually pushes her work in new and exciting directions, often resulting in permanent collections.
