// Nurtured in Catalonia
While working and living in the heart of Barcelona, Sonya immersed herself the city’s intricate beauty of details which seeped into AVIE’s brand identity.
// Developed in Scandinavia
Scandinavia developed AVIE, absorbing the minimalistic aesthetic, crafting AVIE into a rounded concept.
// Matured in Australia
The modern finishes and forward outlook of Australia matured AVIE into a fully functioning brand. AVIE just needed its home to be introduced to the world.
