WHO WE ARE

For years we have worked together on our respective projects, until we decided to formalize this chemistry by founding our design consulting studio: Mr.Lawrence.

 

We complemented each other professionally: theory & design, research & company production, order & disorder. We are different but at the same time synergic. Our strength lies in our two mirrored viewpoints.
