Åbäke is a design studio based in London, although they also co-edited and designed the magazine Sexymachinery, co-direct a clothing and record label Kitsuné, run a publishing house Dent-De-Leone and I’m sure a lot else on top and in between this. This in-betweenness seems central to their work, embracing the collaborative aspect it allows and they are often involved in the work they design.
