Sophie Mercedes Lardon

In 2019 she launched Studio Mercedes under which she has worked cross-disciplinary from interior to exterior, film, theatre and event design and devising. Whilst, conceptually, the studio focuses on the amalgamation of spacial contexts, compositions and immersion, the studio objects derive their inspiration from biomimicry and circuit systems of nature. Its goal is to set scenes and to visually tell stories through objects and atmospheres.
