A design practice based in Vancouver, MAIKU BRANDO explores the design of objects using old and new ways of making.
Maiku Brando is playful, but cares deeply about how materials are mindfully prepared and constructed to make meaningful objects for every day use.
Their atelier is home to an array of sewing machines; digital input and output devices; and computers running experimental design algorithms. But it's also home to vats of fermenting indigo dye; tools for ancient Japanese printing techniques; reams of vellum, trace and other papers - and tape... they have so many different types of tape.
