WHAT IS FÍOR STUDIOS?
Fíor means 'true' in Irish
Fíor studios is an Irish Architecture and Design Studio based in Dublin and Cork.
The studio focuses on collaboration to create exceptional, innovative and sustainable architecture.
Fíor studios is a multidisciplinary design collective. We are a group of designers from different design backgrounds that collaborate to create an all-encompassing design experience.
Communicating and collaborating with different people from different design backgrounds means that everyone approaches a design challenge from a different perspective and therefore the problem is tackled in a new and innovative way.
Through having this collective of designers we can carry through a project from the initial concept to a completed interior design project, creating a cohesive and considered design.
