How do you usher a traditional library into the 21st century?
To celebrate the Emirate of Sharjah’s designation as a UNESCO World Book Capital, we joined forces with Injazat, Alkemy and Foster + Partners to create the House of Wisdom, imbuing spaces with an integrated digital experience across countless touchpoints.
From robotics to facial recognition, interactive stations and totems, and a “book espresso machine” to print and bind books on demand, every facet of the physical realm was brought to life through a complete digital experience enclosed in a powerful app.
House of Wisdom reinterprets the classic library, expanding it to a place for meeting, learning and growing. To do so, it was essential to bring together the design of physical spaces and phygital touchpoints.

Comprehensive design for the ultimate luxury destination
To add a new facet to the wellness experience, Blue Lagoon, a fast-growing spa destination for sustainable luxury in Iceland, called on us to design a new luxury hotel, Michelin-starred restaurant and spa descending 3 meters into the volcanic earth.
Melding the digital and physical for a real impact
Using a fitness tracker wristband with a connected app adhering to a global initiative, through Kid Power, children are incentivized to exercise for points knowing that the more they move, the more malnourished children around the globe will have to eat. Our digital team designed the app, the e-commerce and a series of brand activations for the initiative.
We designed a touch screen display experience enabling remote collaboration to foster productivity and enhance teamwork. Our research for the project paved the way for a perfect platform especially meant to grow tailor-made software solutions, offering both the product itself and a consultancy and service package to ensure optimum integration of Frame-it technology.
Our multidisciplinary team joined forces with the founders of IntendiMe, a new startup providing accessibility through an intertwined ecosystem of products including sensors, a smartwatch and an app. Applied directly to any sound source and connected via an integrated system, the sensors send alert notifications to a wearable smart device with extensive options and an intuitive interface.
