The studio crosses formats and scales when designing interior and public spaces, food, games, workshops and products.
Along the way it collaborates with industry, cultural organisations, communities and individuals; practices listening, and develops new ways to see, communicate and make.
Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad graduated from the Royal College of Art, London in 2008, soon after establishing a practice. Developing work ranging from spaces, products, images, and experimental methodologies, his work explores the social role of design within changing domestic and urban spaces. He uses image production as a defamiliarisation tool to actively engaging individual users and stakeholders within more discursion and dialogic design processes.
Hashemi-Nezhad 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.
He lives and works in London and regularly teaches at the Royal College of Art, Central St. Martins, and Kingston University.
