“They are an elusive source of creative energy inhabiting a supremely productive oeuvre that is an example, a model to all of us that the question is far more important than the answer?”

“Minimaforms’ precisely breathes an atmospheric dimension into architecture while endowing it with shifting anthropic contours.”
- Marie-Ange Brayer, Centre Pompidou
To speak of enabling today one must accept that the creative act makes demands. The world is complex and our understanding ever more uncertain. It is in this uncertainty where expression finds form. Minimaforms explores the nature of nature. Enabling an equitable space to foster curiosity and give agency through participation. The studio is a laboratory at the crossroads of art, design, science and technology that fosters frameworks that are shared and collective. Foregrounding human and emotive experiences that construct the interfaces of our interaction. We work to create space that enables curiosity, evolves and allows for complex interactions to arise through human and nonhuman agency.
Minimaforms was founded by brothers Stephen and Theodore Spyropoulos as an experimental practice exploring art and design as a mode of enquiry to enable new forms of communication that engage the everyday.
