We founded Tellart in the year 2000, when software and networked connectivity began a rapid spread into products, buildings and cities. As classically trained designers we chose to embrace digital technology as a new material in our palette. We built a new type of studio where computation (data, sensors, robotics, networks) could exist fluidly alongside traditional materials like wood, metal, glass, textile and ceramics. The name “Tellart” comes from “the art of storytelling.” Our work is about making sense and making meaning through tangible experiences. We regularly partner with specialist sound, flavour and scent designers to create new forms of multisensory communication.
We study technology trends and partner with futurists, scientists and political experts to describe future worlds and identify likely roadmaps for brands and governments. Our interactive prototypes and high-fidelity theatrical scenarios enable people to explore the future implications of decisions they make today.
Our staff consist of designers, architects, filmmakers, and technologists deeply experienced in shaping ideas from concept
