“(It is the way of the Tao) to act without (thinking of) acting;  to conduct affairs without intentional concern; to taste in the tastelessness;”      
                                                                 --Tao Te Ching,Ch.63


The name of studio n/a comes from the idea of emptiness.
Emptiness is the core concept in Zen, that form is emptiness and emptiness is no other than form. In both art and life, we try to keep the mind in a status of emptiness, so it will contains the universe.
n/a = not applicable / no affair / no answer / not alone

Studio n/a is a diversified art studio started in 2014, Reykjavik. Including branding, packaging, photography, ceramics, installations and interactive workshops, we try to incorporate the Zen thinking into artistic solutions, to discover this magical island in an artistic view.

“为无为,事无事,味无味。”《道德经》卷六十三。

空是禅学的核心,不为做事而做事,在无味中体会滋味,是无事奉行的理念。 无论是做艺术还是做生活,只要在无事的状态中,就会有万事的包容心。
不执著于念,不执著于相,不执著于住,虽备修万行唯以无念为宗。

南台静坐一炉香,终日无心万虑忘。
不是息心除妄想,只缘无事可商量。
