    Jordana Maisie Design Studio recognizes the phenomenal in the everyday.

    JMDS creates architecture, installation, furniture and lighting design projects with a dedication to concept, craft, detail, durability, play and an overarching commitment to a heightened user experience.

    The studio founder, Maisie, began her career as an installation-based Artist, she holds a BFA in Photography and a Masters in Video Production and Sound Engineering.  Maisie’s work has been shown in galleries, museums and festivals throughout Australia, Asia and Europe, for which she won the ANZ Private Bank and Art & Australia Contemporary Art award.  About her practice, Art & Australia Magazine wrote, "Maisie consciously allows her audience and inventions to influence the form, she heralds a fresh relationship between interface and viewer - one that is intuitive, unlimited and, above all, equal.”

    Maisie earned a Master of Architecture and MFA in Lighting Design from the Parsons School of Design during which time she combined her expertise as an installation-based artist with the tools of architecture. Out of this synthesis JMDS was born.

    After graduation Maisie brought her unique approach to the office of world-renowned architecture studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

    JMDS has gone on to design and execute critically acclaimed residential and commercial builds such as the Feit retail spaces at Prince Street Nolita, Greenwich Ave West Village and Jackson St, San Francisco locations, for the Contra Restaurant Group on Orchard Street LES, and Wardrobe.NYC’s inaugural SoHo retail location. JMDS is currently completing a number of residential projects on both the East and West Coasts, and together with Jo Garst Design and their collaborative practice, Social Studios, a multi-family social housing project in Nevada City CA.
