Study O Portable, founded by Bernadette Deddens and Tetsuo Mukai, is a research based practice that makes objects about the designed environment, and our relationship to the cultural landscape that enables it. We are interested in the transitional nature of our ideas towards objects and the work often catalogues various, and sometimes disparate notions associated with certain ideas and objects and proposes other potential for the mundane and ordinary.

Since 2009, the work of Study O Portable has been presented internationally at various places such as Design Miami, London Design Festival, Design Parade, Gallery FUMI, Caroline van Hoek, Phillips de Pury & Company, Pavilion of Art and Design as well as institutions such as Design Museum, Asia Culture Center, Museum of Comtenporary Art Santa Barbara and Design Museum Ghent among others.
