REMAKE HOME AND LIVING INTERVIEW
A joint venture of painter Antea Arizanovic and stylist Jovana Bozovic, Remake is all about breathing new life into used homeware objects. Featuring original, individually crafted artwork that sheds a different light on forgotten paraphernalia inside vintage kitchen cabinets, Remake’s range of products is both strikingly unique and wonderfully bizarre. From plates and teacups, bowls, mugs to pillows,and greeting cards, every object is carefully selected and turned into a brand new, exciting mash-up accompanied by sublime graphic messages. Going through their website I was unable to pick favorite designs, in fact I am obsessed with all of them.
Antea Arizanovic studied to be a painter and has been working as a conceptual artist. Jovana Bozovic is a costume designer and a stylist. Antea married Jovana's brother and that's how the two of them met. They both shared passion for vintage porcelain and soon after they first had an ambition to make a single porcelain plate with their own signature and design, they continued to explore a whole range of homeware design.
Girls tell me what is REMAKE exactly? Remake is a Serbian-Slovenian brand for homeware design. More than that it is a philosophy behind the brand - reviving beautiful, forgotten and unloved objects. Breathing them with new life, twisting and mixing old and new, paving the way to someone who will love these objects again. Remake philosophy transcends from salvaged pieces to limited edition collections of home accents - wall decor (prints and deer-heads), textile (pillows, aprons, laundry bags..) to notebooks and greeting cards. Whatever the piece is, it is always an elegant clash of traditional and provocative. Remake is exotic, wild and lovely, as is that weird part of the world it comes from.
Greatest inspirations or influences? Everyday life is quite enough for inspiration. If you have the gift. Remake brand is a young one, we are quite excited about each piece we make, so we find inspiration in different places. Traveling around always brings something new, either new ideas or new objects for reviving. A few blogs we follow religiously and we are inspired by music, movies and fashion of course.
