About the studio
Studio Richard Vijgen is a design studio for contemporary information culture. I investigate new strategies to find the big stories
in big data
through research and design. My work is deeply rooted in the digital domain but always connects with physical or social space. I design and produce interactive data visualisations and data installations ranging from microscopic to architectural in scale. I use code, pixels and 3D printers to describe the world.
The studio is based online, but resides in the Netherlands. I work with a wide range of clients and institutions around the world.
The studio's work has been widely recognized by many professional organizations and publications, including Wired, Gestalten, The Smithsonian, Rhizome, The European Design Awards and The Dutch Design Awards.
I reflect on and write about digital culture. I initiate and participate in research projects and work with clients to design and produce work that connects the digital realm with social and physical space.
I teach Information Design and Interactive Architecture at the Arnhem school of art and design.
