The studio was established in 2012 by Tauri Mae and Mari Saarepera, now known as Studio Saarepera & Mae. Tauri has a background in engineering, and Mari is a multidisciplinary artist. These two creators combine to form a perfect yet unexpected artistic double act despite their opposing personalities and qualifications. The duo runs a studio, creating sculptural lighting pieces. The artists also create commissioned one-off pieces to complement specific space or character. They work directly with their clients to create a full body of custom light sculptures.
