Studio LONK is an Amsterdam based design studio specialized in spatial storytelling. We create spaces that make a story come to life. We are spatial designers, creative strategists and sociologists who build worlds that provoke thought & interaction, inspiration & engagement.
In bold, playful and colorful ways, we explore complex topics by questioning the status quo and triggering the senses. We like to engage and immerse audiences in interactive interiors combining form, color, text, sound and various media. Our designs reflect on contemporary society and stimulate thoughts about alternative worlds.
We work for cultural and commercial clients that are looking for new ways to tell their story. Together we create temporary experiences and perspectives that make a lasting impression.
We specialize in: interior design, interactive spaces, art direction, sociological research, spatial branding, future scenarios, teaching and storytelling.
Co-founders Celine de Waal Malefijt (spatial design) and Anna Dekker (research) are joined by Ailisha Naomi Shannon (project management), Shami Durrani (design & build), Thomas Tiel Groenestege (design) and Eva James (design & communications).
Since 2009* studio LONK has demonstrated the power of spatial storytelling as a method to truly reach and engage audiences. We have a strong background in sociology, urban planning, architecture, design and brand strategy. A combination which allows us to consider all aspects of experience. We design and build our spatial installations in-house.
