A studio that designs experiences capable of promoting behaviors of sharing, participation, and collaboration in cultural, work, learning and, public spaces.
We started out by designing cardboard furniture with lots of character! A collection of cardboard animals loved by adults, kids, and pets!
It was a great leap from cardboard furniture to creating cultural, learning, public and work spaces. Yet, great challenges always seem to find us! We still don't know exactly how it happened, but in 2013, the biggest Science Center in Portugal (Pavilhão do Conhecimento - Ciência viva) invited us to design a tinkering and maker space with 524m2.
It was a major shift and a huge opportunity that led us to design more and more space experiences. We found our true love and became a space experience design studio focused on creating experiences capable of promoting sharing, participation, and collaboration behaviours in cultural, learning, public and work spaces.
Design can be a tool for social transformation. We strive to have a positive impact and be as much inclusive as we can in each space and experience that we create.
SEAMLESS AND STRAIGHTFORWARD
Great design is seamless and straightforward, and we are the ones who need to figure out how to get there!
Playfulness can be an incentive to learning, creating, and sharing. That's why it's always present in our design and methodology.
The best design is based on knowledge and we sure try to know as much as we can about the spaces and their users.
We jump into every challenge the same way, with many questions and no pretensions to discover everything by ourselves. We bring people together and create project teams with customers, partners, and end-users in a true co-creation process from the research to implementation.
