Besides the development of products and artistic installations we regularly collaborate with institutions and businesses to support them in finding new ways to express their values and story. We understand our role as designers to propose interactions that trigger awareness for thinking things differently – as we are convinced that diversity is a universal law for a healthy evolution.
We value a physical, sensual and intellectual experience as the most profound one to communicate complex ideas and new concepts. Hence our work mostly results in tangible objects and spatial installations. Combining traditional crafts with cutting edge production techniques, we can handle various kinds of projects such as large scale installations, individual pieces, small series or even mass production.Below we outline a typical flow of a project and the skills and services we offer.
The seed for every project is a workshop that we host directly on-site or in our studio (in Berlin Kreuzberg). During this we clarify parameters like values, goals, stories and involved protagonists and absorb all the inspiration we can get. To get the full spectrum, we apply different methods such as dragon dreaming, what-if scenarios or old school design thinking.
In a next step we distill, amplify and grow the given inspirations. The result is an elaborated set of proposals how to tackle the objective with the tools of design and the soul of art.

Just like the human childhood, this early phase of a project is characterized by curiosity, pureness and impartiality. However, it can be considered as the most crucial one, as it significantly defines the character of the future solution.
Playfully we explore the topic with all its physical, social and cognitive aspects. We test materials, relations, causalities, spaces, energies and perceptions. Each finding is challenged by a comprehensive desk and field research as well as the consultation of experts from our network.
We know we have found the right approach, when it thrills all involved minds, is truly unique and meets the constraints.
Short and fast iterations of prototypes and sculptural mockups mark the adolescence of an RLON project. From wood working, 3D printing to CNC milling or physical computing and algorithmic design, we apply all methods necessary to make the concept tangible and experienceable in space.
Each learning refines the concept, each iteration makes it stronger. We elaborate an individual aesthetic in form and interaction that guides the handling of all details.
Our strong experience in CAD modeling and industrial design lets us anticipate upcoming challenges and plan accordingly.
The beginning of this phase can be described as a rites of passage for the project: the before explorative creation now transforms into professional execution. With great dedication we combine traditional crafts with cutting edge production techniques. Backed by our network of partners and manufactures, we can handle various kinds of projects such as large scale installations, individual pieces, small series or even mass production.
What matters for us is that we created something with meaning and soul. An object or narrative that puts things out of the habitual way of interpretation and inspires new perspectives while expressing the values of a place or organization.
This is what studio RLON creates: objects and narratives for curious spaces.
Now this all might sound a litte unusual. But isn’t it the unusual that makes the difference at the end?
