Attua Aparicio Torinos formed Studio Silo with Oscar Lessing while studying on the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art from 2009 to 2011.

Coming from backgrounds in engineering and design, the core of Silo’s work is to look at industrial processes and materials, bringing them into the studio to develop. By adopting a hands-on approach, which they refer to as ‘handmade hi-tech’, they aim to discover possibilities that the production line does not see, developing the expressive potential in industrial materials.
