Aura House online store and publishing concept was born from recognizing a necessity to create a structure that can:
- Provide a platform for emerging designers to introduce and present their work (Profiles)
- Support innovative and experimental approaches to making (Store)
- Find new ways of connecting with the objects around us (Journal)
Recognizing the potential of online space as a tool for information and knowledge production we sat out to create a model that is open and interconnected, gathering crucial sections in one place.
Aura House currently operates a nomadic presence throughout Europe. We are interested in finding, picking and selecting peculiar, singular and previously unknown works by travelling across different countries and mapping ways in which different contexts produce different aesthetics, philosophies and expressions.
Our future aim is to bring a selection of these works together and present them through a series of pop-up events at concept stores in different cities throughout.
Our work stems from genuine curiosity and interest towards the world of makers, places and things. We wish to share this with others and see our contribution as offering support for emerging practices by providing honest and mutually connected context for their work to be seen, as well as taking care of technical things like shipping and logistics.
At AH we want to support emerging designers by commissioning new work directly from them. The commissioning process is integral to our approach, as we have found that close dialogue opens up new ideas, pathways and thinking. We commission the first piece which is shipped from our office in London while the rest are made to order from our website and shipped from designer’s location. Some of our designers already have a collection, meaning that they have a larger stock available while made to order items will be made especially for you, meaning that you should allow 2-3 weeks for the item to be made and delivered to your door.
