Based in Shanghai, Studio 凹凸 is four diversely skilled designers from Dutch, Chinese, and American backgrounds. 凹 (Ao) and 凸 (Tu) represent the interaction of two irregular elements reaching a well-balanced dynamic. From this philosophy, we embrace each project’s unique needs and collaborate closely with the client to achieve innovative design solutions. Studio 凹凸 is a design collective that strives for exceptional design results from the combined effort of both client and designer.
Why devote an entire issue to the MASS Design Group? Not only is the nonprofit firm bringing architecture to communities in need, it's piloting a profoundly more sustainable and ethical model of professional practice.
