IKD is cross-disciplinary in nature: we have backgrounds in architecture, art, exhibition design, furniture and set design. From its inception, the intersection of architecture and art has been at the core of our design philosophy. We believe that a holistic integration of form, function, material, and meaning are essential to design that is poetic: design that transcends being “just” space, that elicits emotion and inspires action. Within the practice of space-making, our cross-disciplinary experience
enhances our awareness of the importance of perception and visual culture in our society, as well as the significance of honoring the people that both shape and are shaped by it.
