Joining forces with industrial design studio, Kilo Design and brand design consultancy, Skibsted Ideation, BIG architects is now part of KiBiSi, a new design company that aims to draw on the skills of each of its founders to create a new breed of idea driven design. BIG architects, founded by Bjarke Ingels has become one of the leading firms of a new generation of architects, repeatedly attracting public attention and triggering political debate with thought provoking designs.
Founded by Lars Holme Larsen, Kilo Design, Bjarke Ingels, BIG and Jens Martin Skibsted, Skibsted Ideation, KiBiSi is a Copenhagen based industrial design firm. Each partner contributes with intelligence and experience from within his specific field, providing KiBiSi with cutting-edge knowledge and knowhow within the fields of architecture, design, furniture, electronics, transportation, contemporary culture and lifestyle. KiBiSi merges the faculties of its founders into a symbiotic hybrid of design, architecture and ideation: the production knowhow and design sensibility of Kilo Design – the big ideas and large scale perspective of BIG architects - and the idea driven innovation and brand awareness of Skibsted Ideation. Having collaborated on multiple projects for years, Larsen, Ingels and Skibsted decided to turn their intuitive inclination to work together into a full time collaboration.
