Interview with Revano Satria at Tuesday 23rd of October 2018

FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
RS: I was graduated from AA School of Architecture London, UK in 2010 with a Master Degree in Emergent Technologies and Design. I never wanted to be a designer at the beginning. All my life, i always fascinated about the idea of what will happened next and what lies ahead in the future. Computer Science comes naturally as my point of interest, but architecture is something that i knew i can be good at. So it was not my first choice, it was the only thing at that time that i suited me the most.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
RS: MSSM Associates is an award-winning internationally progressive interdisciplinary design office with branches located in Cyprus, Indonesia, Lebanon and the UK.​Founded by four post-graduate students at the Architectural Association in London, MSSM Associates manifested into an innovative, multinational collaboration. The founders, Michel Moukarzel, Mohammed Makki, Revano Satria and Pavlos Schizas pride themselves in applying the most dynamic and innovative emergent technologies in all aspects of their designs, a modus operandi that has secured the team multiple international awards, and whose work and research has been published and presented in numerous international journals and conferences across a multitude of different platforms and institutions.​The team has been founded on the belief that nature is the ultimate inspiration for design; regardless of scale, the application of the laws that govern natural systems has proven instrumental in MSSM Associate’s unique and innovative multidisciplinary design solutions. An aspiration that the team endeavors to achieve without fail.​Working in constant unison with professionals of multiple disciplines allows MSSM Associates to comprehensively and efficiently transcribe concept to reality, providing solutions to a spectrum of challenges that range in form, application, function and scale.
