Florian Ortkrass' practice revolves around the creative conception of rAndom International's work—led together with Stuart Wood and Hannes Koch— as well as its physical and functional implementation. His sustained interest in applied science and human cognitive development fuels the evolution of new works and studio culture.

Florian Ortkrass is founding director of the Londonbased experimental design group rAndom International, famous for installations such as The Rain Room, featured at MOMA New York this year. Florian will discuss rAndom International's diverse practice ranging from responsive environments such as The Rain Room and Audience to highly technically innovative design objects such as their Temporary PrintingMachine and Pixelroller.
