Founded in 2006, Studio Drift mixes dreamy and poetic visuals with hi-tech design to explore the relationship between nature, technology and mankind. They have collaborated with scientists, university departments, research facilities, programmers and engineers in order to produce their innovative projects that are both technically advanced and aesthetically beautiful.
