    About Us

    Founded in 2007 by Christopher Stuart

    Luur is a multidisciplinary design studio working in graphics, objects, and spaces to conceptualize and develop innovative solutions that represent the clients’ brand. Under the creative direction of American designer, Christopher Stuart, the team seeks new ways to define brands, pulling from backgrounds in architecture, furniture design, product design, graphic design, and art.

    The studio combines their experience on the design side with an understanding of manufacturing processes and materials. With an in-house shop, the team is able to explore solutions beyond paper through hands on problem solving.

    Luur takes an empathetic approach when designing, and builds on this consideration for the end user to ensure that through form and function are well balanced.

    When Luur is not designing for their clients, they are working on their own line of products and furniture.

    We are a diverse team of thinkers, designers, makers, and do-ers!
