About Us

This is the shop of the Near Future Laboratory, a thinking, making, design, development and research practice based in California and Europe.

Our goal is to understand how imaginations and hypothesis become materialized to swerve the present into new, more habitable near future worlds. Our practice involves working closely with creative, thoughtful experts within various domains of work depending on the needs of any particular project. Our associations with a wide network of well-respected and accomplished practitioners makes it possible to work from concept development to construction of unique digital designs.

Our approach to future research leads to the production of case studies, events, workshops, fast-prototyped apps, innovative algorithms, curious objects, mock-ups, videos, fictional magazines, newspapers, product catalogs.
