DESIGN STUDIO X RESEARCH OFFICE
DESIGN STUDIO
BASED IN LOS ANGELES, CA–
 
We see each project as an opportunity to explore different design ideas while building on over-arching themes. We continuously revisit the values that we feel define who we are and how we work. many times we find that OUR DESIGN PROCESS FLUCTUATES BETWEEN DIFFERENT SCALES: THE URBAN LANDSCAPE AND THE SINGULAR BUILDING, THE INTERIOR ENVIRONMENT AND THE GRAPHIC DETAIL, THE SCULPTURED CHAIR AND THE MINIMAL BACKDROP.
FOR OUR TEAM AND OUR WORKFLOW, WORKING AT THESE DIFFERENT SCALES AND IN DIFFERENT formats CREATES A HOLISTIC BALANCE THAT PRODUCES A RICHER PRODUCT.
tHE OTHER HALF OF OUR OFFICE IS RESEARCH DRIVEN. AT THE MOMENT, WE ARE EXPLORING DIFFERENT WAYS OF BUILDING AND DIFFERENT MATERIAL SYSTEMS AND HOW THAT CAN ULTIMATELY IMPROVE THE EXPEREINCE OF THE TENANT. OUR EXPLORATIONS HAVE LED US TO SOME PREFAB PARTNERSHIPS, SOME ENGAGEMENTS WITH NOVEL PRODUCT COMPANIES, AND ALSO CLIENTS WHO ARE SUPPORTIVE OF EXPLORING THE RISK AND REWARDS OF INNOVATIVE CONSTRUCTION. 
 
We enjoy every kind of design challenge and welcome all opportunities that come our way–

FOR US, DESIGNING INTERIOR SPACES IS ABOUT UNDERSTANDING HOW PEOPLE USE, MOVE ABOUT, EXPERIENCE, AND FEEL THROUGHOUT THEIR DAY TO DAY LIFE. 
TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, WE OFTENTIMES, BREAK DOWN THE SPACE INTO A SERIES OF MOMENTS. THE DESIGN SLOWLY FORMS THROUGH AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW SOMEONE MIGHT SPEND THEIR TIME AND HOW THAT TIME AND EXPERIENCE CAN BECOME SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL, FUN, AND ENJOYABLE.
ONCE WE LAY OUT ALL THE INDIVIDUAL MOMENTS, THE EXPERIENCE WE HOPE TO EVOKE BECOMES VERY CURATED. THE CURATION USUALLY LASTS FOR ONLY A BRIEF MOMENT BEFORE IT TAKES ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN. ITS THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN WHAT WE EXPECT AND WHAT IT EVOLVES INTO THAT MAKES SOME OF OUR FAVORITE MOMENTS WITH INTERIOR DESIGN.

BRAND IDENTITY – STRATEGY – PACKAGE DESIGN – ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
 
IN OUR OFFICE, WE LOVE TO TAKE 2D DESIGNS AND TREAT THEM AS ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS. HOW CAN WE OBJECTIFY THIS FLAT GRAPHIC AND UTILISE IT AS WE WOULD A PIECE OF FURNITURE OR AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE BUILDING LIKE A DOOR OR WINDOW ?
 
THE CONCEPTS WE DEVELOP FOR BRANDING AND IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT OFTEN COINCIDE WITH THE ONES WE DEVELOP FOR INTERIOR DESIGN. MERGING THE TWO ALLOWS US TO BUILD IN A CONSISTENCY THAT WE BELIEVE IS REALLY IMPORTANT. EVENTUALLY, IT BECOMES LESS ABOUT DESIGNING INDIVIDUAL OBJECTS AND MORE ABOUT CRAFTING A VERY INTENTIONAL PERCEPTION AND EXPERIENCE. WHEN THE PACKAGING MATCHES THE STORE, YOU KNOW THE SHOES MATCH THE BELT.
