The practice has now expanded to two continents with offices in New York and London. They maintain a small, dedicated, staff of professional designers with diverse backgrounds that range from fashion design to dance to research science. Working with an international team of collaborators including artists, fabricators, and artisans, the studio is currently developing projects in North America, Eastern and Western Europe, and Asia.
They favor the strategic over the thematic, the cosmopolitan over the typological, and the atmospheric over the static. Ever-focused on the contemporary, they take diligent note of the past while day-dreaming the future.
