MEKÂN • SPACE is an experience design studio.


The focus of the studio is on creating immersive and interactive experiences. 

We come from a human-centered design perspective which engages people and provokes active participation. Thus, people become part of the experience whether it is an artwork or a commercial project. 

We use the tools offered by today's technologies in order to investigate the production methods of new ideas and stories

Our team is innovative with a holistic perspective. Without loosing touch with the traditional methods, we seek out extraordinary solutions for the problems we face. 

We include developing technologies' tools in our production process to transpose the relationship between the physical space and the virtual space. Thus we have the opportunity to go beyond the rules of physics. 

MEKÂN • SPACE aims to move beyond the boundaries, providing new insights into the process of experience design.
