Office of Tangible Space is an interdisciplinary design studio founded by Michael Yarinsky and Kelley Perumbeti specializing in architecture, interiors, furniture and curation, with projects ranging from the object-scale to the urban. Our work is grounded in a human-centric approach that is achieved through warmth and materiality - the creation of space that feels lived in and strengthens a feeling of comfort and contentment. Much of the work attempts to bring in play and engagement through form, texture, through the use of new and unexpected materials, details and color. We like to create texture by challenging program of the space/design to create unexpected moments of interaction. Our designs seek to be aesthetically appealing, yes, but hope to make you feel something and contribute to an ethically-designed future.
Regardless of project scale, the intentionality in each detail of our work allows for moments of thoughtful engagement and opportunities for social gathering. It evokes a desire to stay and to notice - to have a dialogue with the immediate environment.
We have offices in Brooklyn and San Francisco.
