Loop.pH is a London based art and design studio intervening at an urban scale to re-imagine life in the city. The studio was founded in 2003 by Mathias Gmachl and Rachel Wingfield to create a new design practice reaching beyond specialist boundaries, mediating between digital & biological media and facilitating participatory design and urban crafts.
Loop.pH specialize in the design and fabrication of ephemeral textile architecture and living environments to create urban interventions informed by ecologically based parametric design and principles of community engagement.
The studio has consulted on creative strategies and future scoping for industry, start-ups and the public sector with healthcare and regeneration agencies. Recent R&D has been supported by the Leverhulme Trust, Medical Research Council, Audi Design Foundation and the Technology Strategy Board. Their installation work can be seen in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), NY and the V&A Museum, London.
We work on public space commissions and are available to consult on design research projects. We also run workshops in the field of living environments and digital media. Some of our portfolio is available to commission for both private and commercial clients.
