PARTISANS is a movement. We are architects, thinkers, and cultural enthusiasts devoted to a cause: smart, beautiful, and provocative design.

PARTISANS designs objects, designs architecture, designs cities, designs concepts, and even ideas. We strive to make the improbable possible and the impossible viable, at all scales and media. Our curiosities are insatiable and our drive to create them is central to our project. We are an award winning, internationally published studio founded in 2011 by Alexander Josephson and Pooya Baktash.
