Transmissions from the fourth dimension
DESIGN KOMPANY warmly welcome you to S P A C E. This is where we are writing, sharing, connecting, and interconnecting new and different others, in remarkable ways. Remarkable is important. No superficial mumbo-jumbo, here. Meaningful and not trivial conversation and connection; that’s our goal.
Why? So that we can have better quality. Art, design, software, architecture, international development… these have been the fields in which we have been talking with experts, conversing in long-form style together to discover meaning-making over the last 15 years. Seattle, Raleigh-Durham, and Phnom Penh are bases. We are moving and discovering all the time, in the roving creative lab that seeks to write and connect, in Atelier S P A C E, too. It’s all very lofty and esoteric, I suppose, but the world is changing by the minute as I write this. Spent hours looking at articles about ‘humane technology,’ about ‘time well spent,’ about ‘meaningful interactions.’ Sounds like the stuff we’ve been talking about quite a lot, for the last decade, so now, when people ask, ‘Why do you do this?’, it’s easier to say, ‘Because… what. Life is short, mate. Let’s have a good party. Let’s do it now.’
Expect the unexpected!
TO DO THE thing that the world seems to be looking at more closely, with a clearer, better instrument as a lens: designing space for true connection, and respecting one another, and seeing, but not just seeing, actively seeking, new perspectives. This is after all what we’ve got over the robots. Human connection. For the last twenty years, the studio’s founders, collaborators, friends, acquaintances, and colleagues have been thinking and working on ways to get us all out of our boxes, so we can free ourselves from the kind of thinking that keeps us from going new places, trying new things, meeting new people, and investigating ‘other.’ Now that we are in this conversation about how to do that, I’d like to tell you a little bit about the salons, ateliers, and workshops that we are hosting now. It’s best if you can experience S P A C E, so we made a new interactive magazine, S P A C E, that takes you week by week through the stories shaping the members who are participating in conversations that get us all talking, together, about things that matter to us.
DRIFT, NOMADISM, travel, architecture, design, branding, and journalism. That’s our background. DK make space for you to try new things, in a roving, popup, short-form workshop-atelier Atelier S P A C E. This is like when you go into a lab, and you don’t know what’s going to happen, but because of chance and serendipity and who else happens to be around something spontaneous and intriguing might just pop out. ‘Weird and interesting!’ ‘Refreshingly honest!’
