Design & Technology
About Our Studio
Moniker is an Amsterdam based design studio founded in 2012 by Luna Maurer, Jonathan Puckey and Roel Wouters. With Moniker, which means nickname or pseudonym, we work on commissioned design projects while also investing in projects of an autonomous and experimental nature.
The studio works across various media for a diverse range of clients ranging from those in the cultural field to commercial companies.
With our projects, we explore the social effects of technology - how we use technology and how it influences our daily lives. Often, we ask the public to take part in the development of our projects. The resulting projects expand and grow like plants, displaying their inner organisational process.
Moniker specializes in interactive, print, video, physical installation and performance work.
Every other thursday we take our time to develop ideas and experiment with different media, materials and technologies. We play with instructions, taking turns, participation and interaction.
Every other week we publish the results of the latest Thursday Afternoons Workshop on thursdays.studiomoniker.com
Tweede Leeghwaterstraat 7m
