Deep Play is how we work. It is an idea that drives us to strive for the balance between Investment, Responsibility and Satisfaction in the work we do and the way we do it.
. . . started Openshop in 2001 in New York City and Beijing as a traditional design studio. Very quickly it became clear us that in order to create real Human Experiences, a new more inclusive model of design thinking was needed. This journey to find a new way of practicing led us to the Openshop of today. It combines our work as designers, our experience as makers and our history as teachers to create a place where we can have real meaningful impact. Mavis Walnut (Italian Spinone) and Dixie Mae Zydeco (Wirehaired Pointing Griffon) are an important part of the team here at Openshop.
