SIOSI is Audi Culver + Ivy Siosi - partners in life, collaborators in design, and women who make + fabricate.
Since 2012 we've dedicated our lives to exceptional craft, clean lines, and subtle details. We believe in creating art, building our community, having fun, and expanding upon fundamental designs while honoring the resources and respecting the tools we use to build them.
Each piece is made by hand, by us, in our studio – in Bloomington, Indiana – each piece is unique and treated with individual care. We use locally sourced, sustainable hardwoods and zero or low VOC hand rubbed finishes. All of our slabs are hand-picked to suit the project and the clients' wishes.
We are always happy to design and make a custom piece for your home or office. Let us know what you need, and we'll set you up with a drawing, cost, and freight details. We charge a $180 design fee for custom work - this fee is refundable if you ask us to make your custom design. Once we work out all of the details, we ask for a 50% deposit for all custom requests - the remaining balance + freight are charged upon completion.
Local clients, please contact us before you order - we are pleased to provide free delivery for the majority of our pieces (as long as we can transport and carry them without an extra set of hands). We ship nationwide - large items are carefully packaged in a custom crate and sent by FedEx Freight. International shipping is also available, please contact us and we'll work out the details.
Ivy has a background in fine art, automotive restoration, and home building. She is the motor behind the design force of SIOSI. Distraction motivated and inspired, Ivy's days are dense and diversified - from design, to woodworking, to welding, to fixing the vehicles and building motorcycles; Ivy is a force to be reckoned with.
Audi's concentrations in fine art, photography, and time-management wizardry are integral to the success of SIOSI. She is the conductor of all things business - from photography + website design, to emails + social media. Focused, eyes on the prize, Audi will probably answer your email within an hour of receiving it while routing out a couple of inlays, updating the lookbook, and developing a new prototype.
Together, they are the whole pie - constantly learning, constantly striving to learn more; each piece, the overall aesthetic, the approach, is a collaboration.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Peyman Hosseinzadeh - who tirelessly helped design this fancy website. phossein
