SHAPES iN PLAY works at the exciting interfaces of product design, craftmanship and digital technology.
In 2011 we, Johanna Spath and Johannes Tsopanides, founded our collaboration under the studio name SHAPES in PLAY for interdisciplinary design projects. We cooperate with industrial companies and cultural organisations, work on self-initiated projects and give lectures at design universities. The valuable synergies of these wide range of activities mutually benefit each other and trigger ideas for new projects.
SHAPES iN PLAY´s design projects range from industrial products, handmade limited editions, jewellery and interactive installations that generate 3D-printed, one-of-a-kind objects, to parametric data visualisations and user interfaces. We design new products, develop designs to expand an existing portfolio or create designs based on an existing idea.
