Originally founded in Brooklyn NY, we are now located in London, England. Our heroes range from Douglas Engelbart to Josef Müller-Brockmann to David Bowie and beyond. We have an aesthetic of flatness and are a bit suspicious of glossiness. We don't do fake cut-and-paste. (That's not real punk.) We don't do visual complexity for its own sake. (We prefer simple.) We primarily make deadpan, playful things and exhibition pieces.
Stewdio thrives on collaboration, expanding and contracting as necessary. We've greatly enjoyed working with Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Warning Office, ZKM Center for Art and Media, and many more. Our work has appeared in various exhibitions and festivals in New York, London, Paris, Brussels, Munich, and so on. To obtain more information or apply for an internship contact Stewdio by email (just replace the "A.T" with an @ symbol) or send correspondence toStewdio
We are located in Dalston, north of the Dalston Kingsland Overground and Dalston Junction Overground. The nearest bus stop, Shacklewell Lane, is serviced by the 236. The identically named (but slightly further away) Shacklewell Lane bus stop is serviced by the 67, 76, 149, and 243 lines. We're on the second floor of Shacklewell Studios. Just tap buzzer number 11 when you arrive at the front door of the building.
