NAIVE PEOPLE - A DESIGN COLLECTIVE
we are architectural, landscape, interior, and industrial designers with a particular interest in storytelling through spatial ideas. we create myths, moments, and spectacles that are interactive and reactive.
we design and we build. we are young, but we are pensive. we are fresh, but we are expressive, and most importantly we are naïve, but we are assertive.
