Überknackig is a Brussels based design office focusing on design and art direction within the fields of art, culture and whatever.
Founded in 2010 by Orfée Grandhomme & Ismaël Bennani, the studio engages in projects of different scales and scopes both locally and internationally.

The studio was established as a collaborative practice, our team is modulable to accommodate a broader circle of specialists to suit the requirements of projects. Also we play an essential role in collaborations and partnerships with artists, curators, editors, architects and institutions.

We design books and publications, visual identities and systems, spaces and exhibitions, interactive projects, printed and online communications; from research and editorial coordination to sourcing and production follow-up.
