About us

We are an interdisciplinary duo that poured all of our knowledge and inspiration into BOIR: Vlatka Leskovar - Zidar, a product designer, and Ivan Zidar, a graphic designer turned chef. Ivan's understanding of local ingredients and endless love for culinary experimentation blends with Vlatka's ever-evolving exploration of the way physical objects inspire rituals and incite memories. Together, they create a unique platform for development of design concepts. To boil it down — only a chef and a designer can create a truly memorable tableware.

Vlatka worked as a Creative Director at award-winning spatial design studio Brigada, while Ivan studied culinary arts at Institut Paul Bocuse, before launching his successful gourmet street food franchise Mason burgers&stuff. When our lives fused together, we realized we needed to join our inspirations too. A year later — BOIR was born.
