WMB are a design studio. We work on projects that range in scale, from street furniture to buildings. We develop conceptually inventive projects with a clear diagrammatic approach. An exploration of geometric form underpins our design processes, alongside our fascination for how things are made and assembled. Regardless of scale or budget, our projects are focused on creating a beautiful, functional and enriching experience for those who encounter them.
