JASON BRUGES STUDIO
Jason Bruges Studio has become internationally renowned for producing innovative installations, interventions and ground breaking works. This practice involves creating interactive spaces and surfaces that sit between the world of architecture, site specific installation art and interaction design. Considered a pioneer of this hybrid in-between space, Jason has subsequently paved the way for a new genre of design studios, artists and designer-makers.
The studio has recently finished working on a number of high profile projects including a luminous, suspended canopy at IFA in Berlin, a reactive ceiling installation at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a digital artwork for number 10 Downing Street and the world’s highest art installation for the Shard on NYE 2014/15. Other recent works include a public artwork for a new development in Toronto, Canada, an interactive feature wall in Beijing, China and a New Media Lounge at San Diego International Airport. In 2012 the studio completed a unique award winning distraction artwork for Great Ormond Street Hospital in London for children on their route to surgery, a pioneering new digital arts project for Tate Modern, as well as a number of pieces for the London 2012 Olympics.
