Process

Ramin is an interdisciplinary designer working at the intersection between art, space, and emerging technologies. His scope of experiences includes architectural design, construction management, product development, installations, exhibitions, smart material research, robotics, and interaction/experience design. In parallel, he has channelled research lines into teaching, having lectured, led workshops internationally, and taught courses at university. He specializes in digital design, prototyping and fabrication techniques, executing projects at all stages, from conception, through form-finding and development with digital tools, to final construction through machinic methods. Ramin is also a physical computing and programming enthusiast, as he constantly seeks for creative uses of new technologies in building interactive physical systems that sense and respond to the analog world whilst augmenting human experiences.
