Studio SKLIM is an international design agency deriving bespoke solutions.

Studio Profile

Studio SKLIM firmly believes that design opportunities are inherent, waiting to be unleashed or given a new perspective.  The organisation of “raw materials” not limited to the form of environmental data, existing typographical conditions, cultural peculiarities and technological limits form part of a platform from which our design process initiates these extractions.  Analysis on our fast changing contemporary life demands a rethink and reorganisation of existing spatial parameters, making conceptual clarity and contemporary investigative research instrumental to the design process of our work.  Our design ethos feeds on this rigor.

From banality breeds creativity and each project stems from its own unique set of pragmatics and constraints.  We are neither conformists nor idealists but prefer to engage the in-between boundaries of producing spaces that shouts “pragmatics”, with an additional dose of our muses.  We believe that the most basics of design solutions are sometimes able to conjure the most complex relationships with the environment.

We embark on design journeys with our consultants and clients, as a collective experience to explore market demands, environment sustainability, design technology and socio-cultural landscapes with the hope of creating built environments that resonate with our shared positions.
