Michael Ryan and Sophie Demenge are the husband-and-wife team who created Oeuf (pronounced UH-F, means egg in French). Born and raised in upstate New York, Ryan brings an engineer’s perspective and eye for minimalist design to the company’s high-quality, functional pieces. Raised in Paris, Sophie’s playful and practical approach to design was nurtured is such diverse places as the philosophy department at the Sorbonne, trapeze classes in San Francisco, the Pratt Institute in New York. The birth of their first child in 2002 turned the couple’s talents to children’s design, and together they created Oeuf with the vision to provide modern parents with high-quality, streamlined pieces that are sustainable sourced and responsibly created.
HEAVY PETAL: SPRING/SUMMER COLLECTION Designed with a brighter future in mind, these playful pieces remind us that childhood — even amid a pandemic — should be carefree and light.
