rAndom was founded by Stuart Wood, Flo Ortkrass and Hannes Koch in 2002. The studio was set up to extend the perspective of contemporary practice. Working from the fringes of art, design, science and architecture, rAndom are developing projects and installations that re-interpret the ‘cold’ nature of digital-based work and emphasise the interaction between the animate (audience) and the inanimate (object), bringing the two into a powerful relationship of performance.
The studio’s work has won many awards in the fields of art, architecture and design over the past few years. In 2009 their interactive ‘Audience’ installation received an Honorable Mention at Prix Ars Electronica, and the Observer recognized rAndom among the top ten UK designers in 2007. rAndom has won several diverse awards, including: the iF Design award in 2006 and in 2005; the Wallpaper design award, 2006 and the Creative Futures Award, 2005.
The studio is currently collaborating to create special projects with Incubator – an alternative platform to initiate and to develop new work. This collaboration was inaugurated at Design Miami / Art Basel with the new work ‘Self Portrait’ in the Designer of the Future exhibition.
