TEAM

We are a design team that believes two minds work better than one! Our open floor plan studio space keeps the work environment highly collaborative and transparent. Aside from the daily work hours, we enjoy bringing our team together as often as we can through collective daily lunches and break times. This informal interaction and flat hierarchy are a significant element in Nina Mair’s company structure.

STUDIO

Mair also invites experts such as psychologists, sociologists and urban planners to provide their perspectives on client projects, enriching them with academic intelligence beyond the field of design. Passionate about innovation, Nina Mair is known for an extensive and hands-on approach. The studio develops customized solutions through experimentation, research and development, pushing the boundaries of materiality, technology, architectural construction and product manufacturing. Nina Mair’s obsession for detail and quality carries through every stage—from the first technical sketches, 1:1 prototypes, material sourcing and on-site construction management, to the floral arrangements on opening day.

Our studio is located in a former soap factory within the heart of Innsbruck, a city of the Alps. The beautiful alpine surroundings are a calming backdrop and source of inspiration reflected in each of our products.
