In exploring the shifting roles of the designer within complex social systems, the studio embraces informal knowledge, everyday technologies, observational research and modes of defamiliarization when developing new methodologies to actively engage publics within design processes.
Here you will see the design of systems, interior and public spaces, food, games, images and products.
Hashemi-Nezhad graduated from the Royal College of Art and regularly teaches at Kingston University and Central St. Martins in London.
He is the recipient of a number of international design awards, research grants (AHRC), Near Now Fellowship (2015), and is part of Theatrum Mundi/Global Street, an international interdisciplinary research project from London School of Economics and directed by Richard Sennett which brings architects, designers and artists together to re-imagine public space.
