Studio Drift was established in 2007 by Lonneke Gordijn (1980) and Ralph Nauta (1978), who both graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) in 2005. In their installations and interactive sculptures the relationship between nature/human/technology is key. Gordijn’s fascination for nature and that of Nauta for science fiction and technology intersect in an intriguing way. Over more than a decade of their existence, Studio Drift’s work in product and furniture design has evolved into increasingly larger, often site-specific and moving installations which they have realized all over the world. The works occupy a wholly unique place between disciplines such as tech art, performance, and biodesign. Data and algorithms derived from natural phenomena often form the basis for Studio Drift’s work – the flight patterns of a flock of birds, for instance. With the help of state-of—the- art technologies they translate this data into poetic, meditative experiences. Their ideas regularly anticipate technological possibilities. This is why they collaborate with scientists, programmers, engineers, and other specialists in the development of projects.
